I agree totally. Friends posted articles from both sides that were fake without verifying source or content.
Google and Facebook must be part of the solution. Advertising and clicks drive many of these stories not just during an election season.
They’re should be a rating system from originator ie MSM TV, radio, newspaper, blog akong with ownership, publisher and bias tendency.
This would give the reader enough info to determine truth or bias.
The problem isn’t with journalist as much as its with the internet and the vital nature for the odd, peculiar, fame or fortune nature of the subject and source to which Google / Facebook have incentivize and benefit from.
