http://www.recode.net/2016/12/15/13...t=chorus&utm_medium=social&utm_source=twitter The question is how does one define "fake news"? My opinion the definition of "fake news" should be incredibly narrow. For example during the election someone posted a tweet bragging about destroying Trump absentee ballots in Ohio. This person was actually from California. They tweeted it to see how many pro-Trump sites would fall for it. Because Trump had been pushing the idea that the election might be rigged naturally this fit right into that and so it was picked up by certain pro-Turump sites and eventually found its way on to Drudge and Rush Limbaugh show. OK this is something that can easily be verified. The person tweeting it was located in California and admitted he made it up. That's clearly fake and I wouldn't even call it news. But that's clearly different than something presented a certain way to conform to the writers own political biases. Also politicians lie and spin all the time. Its impossible to filter that out. Bottom line is as long as people are willing to believe anything they read on the internet or see on TV if it conforms to their political biases not much can be done. I think the bigger issue is with so many different sources and ways to get news now people end up only getting news from sources that tell them what they want to hear. How do you get people to be willing to get news from more diverse perspectives and then form their own opinions? Very difficult when most people are set in their ways and don't want to take the time to educate themselves.
