That’s interesting. He said, “He said people cannot differentiate from “fake news,” “real news” or “opinion news” on Facebook.” However, that’s not true–we’re on the internet, we can look things up to verify a story, it’s just we’re often too lazy or in a hurry to do so. I’ve done it myself, although I do try to be much more careful. Moderating the Oath Keepers FB site during the bird sanctuary protest taught me a valuable lesson–people believe what they want to believe, and they use news sites that tell them news they already know they want to hear. All Facebook and sites like it do is, make it easier for them to do it. I’d rather have no controls at all than have them decide for me, what is fake news and what’s real news.
