Although the Verge stated just yesterday, "My Samsung Galaxy Fold screen broke after just a day. Yikes," this article refers to the author as passive and as evidence of an anti-Apple bias, cherry picking quotes to justify its false premise. If anything, the Verge article is evidence of the opposite:We’ve seen worries about scratches on expensive phones and debris breaking the keyboard on expensive MacBooks, but a piece of debris distorting the screen on a $1,980 phone after one day of use feels like it’s on an entirely different level.
Can you not see the difference between saying, “my screen broke on day 2, yikes (not even an exclamation point)” vs printing an article with no Es or Rs and dressing up as a butterfly?
The point isn’t that no one ever says a negative word about Samsung. The point is that journalism with its funding tied entirely into click throughs has completely degraded to a point where it no longer is even attempting to accurately portray events. It’s simply taking advantage of shock value to gain viewership.
