Fake News
So this has been a topic that's been cropping up more and more after the 2016 election...

The rise of fake news and how journalists and other media creators are lying/manipulating the truth.
It's prominent enough that MatPat (of Game Theory/Film Theory) did a video on it...




Facebook and other sites have been in crap over it.

So what do you think the solution is?

Spoiler:
In case you either can't watch the video or just want a refresher... was that subscriptions would lead to less clickbait (and thus less fake news) because news outlets would have a guaranteed income and not have to rely on trying to bolster clicks and thus get more ad revenue.

RE: Fake News
I persoanlly don't give to shits anymore. When people on facebook just share any artical, legit or fake, that makes their side seem oh so perfect, I unfallow that page, and delete that person.

I have no time for extreme leftists and rightists
