Fake news comes from people who don’t know what they are doing or talking about. Also, those who ignore expert advice and science. Just saying.
In a world that is ever changing we don’t have time for fake anything. I wrote a post on clickbait awhile back and as we have discovered lately mostly its fake news or sensational headlines that are supposed to be passed off as real. We are living in times when people play politics with news and information to advance their agenda. Facebook and Google are working to curtail the cancer that is misinformation which is a good thing. People need to have as much information as possible to make smart decisions. People will pass along things without verifying the source and that makes the problem even worse. Bad info damages every country and it has a serious impact on the democratic process. Good information is important and we need this now more than ever.
