Fake news conspiracy. Fake polling data. Fake America. Revelations have occurred to Facebook that fake news stories could very well sway public opinion. Paul Horner, the self-proclaimed Guru of the Fake News movement on Facebook is behind the sprout of copycat sites and headlines that read like this…
“REPUBLICAN MASCOT ATTACKS: Donald Trump supporter attacked by man in Elephant Mask”
Horner seems to only take aim at Republicans (Donald Trump Supporters specifically). Here’s a quote from The Washington Post
“Honestly, people are definitely dumber. They just keep passing stuff around. Nobody fact-checks anything anymore — I mean, that’s how Trump got elected. He just said whatever he wanted, and people believed everything, and when the things he said turned out not to be true, people didn’t care because they’d already accepted it. It’s real scary. I’ve never seen anything like it.”
“My sites were picked up by Trump supporters all the time. I think Trump is in the White House because of me. His followers don’t fact-check anything — they’ll post everything, believe anything.”
Contradictive or ironic? He submits a fake news outlet to generate an income but publicly shames the same people that provide the lifestyle he lives? He then downgrades half the population because of an election he says was influenced by stories like his. Facebook and Google have issued initiatives to ban such Fake News sites from advertisement but this will not detour the overall chain mail effect that these stories provide.
President Obama even weighed in on the issue today on the misconception fake news outlets generate by stating:
“We won’t know what to fight for, and we can lose so much of what we’ve gained in terms of the kind of democratic freedoms and market-based economies and prosperity that we’ve come to take for granted.”
