Or worse: Facebook.

Another useful statistic is "how many articles does a newspaper publish in a day". In the case of the Washington Post, New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and Buzzfeed, the anser is about 150 - 500 items per day of original, locally-sourced content.

News-wire services such as AP, Reuters, and UPI offer 2,500 - 5,000 items. Numbers researched investigating questions of "fake news".
