"25 Fake News Stories From The Mainstream Media"

... ist ein überaus lesenswerter Artikel auf der Website von IVN (Independent Voters Project) betitelt:
One of the main news stories right now is the proliferation of fake news websites on social media and their potential effect on US elections. One purveyor of fake news drew heavy fire for boasting, “I think Trump is in the White House because of me.”

Meanwhile Google and Facebook announced they would be banning fake news websites from their advertising networks, citing the immense popularity of fake news with partisans on social media this election cycle.

So it’s important now for the independent, critically-minded reader and sharer of news to note and reflect on the amount of fake news stories propagated by mainstream media sources, sometimes unknowingly through unacceptable carelessness and lack of proper journalistic rigor, other times knowingly and deliberately to influence elections or support a policy agenda.

Alle faken inzwischen, Linke, Rechte, Mainstream- und "unabhängige" Medien. Ergo: es kommt drauf an, wer am besten und effektivsten faket. Und da gilt die gute alte Wahrheit: ec oriente Lux! Putin hat die US-Wahl bestgefaked, er wird auch Merkel wegfaken. Und das ist auch gut so.
