Fighting fake news with digital skills

Welcome to the cause.

We’ve been fighting fake news and clickbait for nearly a decade. The best way to help fight “fake news” is to proof it, and vet it and if it is fake, then alert the people who posted it. When I post one of my “fake news” memes to a fake Facebook thread or post, it usually ends the commenting, and sharing. What’s bad is when a fake news item has been shared a million times.

The biggest fake news story of all times was “There are no WMDs”

A lie told once is but a lie . . . but a lie told a thousand times becomes the truth.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
