Our problem isn’t ‘fake news.’ Our problems are trust and manipulation.
Jeff Jarvis

Ironic that you site Fox News . . . shortly after a Harvard study found Fox to be the most balanced.

The elephant in the room you missed is the complete one-sided reporting of the old guard. This was the wedge which opened the door to alternative sources of low quality — nicely exploited by the Russians. That the overwhelming bulk of the media sits strongly on the left. This is the boot which drives the wedge to open to door wider.

Did we see an equal balance of investigative reporting on both candidates from any one source? Fox according to the study.

That is the problem you need to first fix.
