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?

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
