Google News holds a special place in the world of journalism. When multiple media outlets report on the same topic in a short amount of time, the articles that make it to the main News page are seen by the most people. If you're a musician, you want your song to show up on Spotify's main page. If you're in a comedy movie, you want it to be listed first in the "comedy" section on Netflix. That's why one of my crowning achievements as a journalist was convincing the Google News algorithm I was the queerest artificial intelligence reporter in the world.
