Nobody at Facebook fact checked stories and just spread them. Fake news sites are popping up all over and being shared on Facebook.
We reported on fake news sites here:
We try to report on news items that are real. We might use humor and Poe’s law sometimes for entertainment values, but we try to have a kernel of truth at least in stories. We report what we know as the truth.
Facebook must be using some sort of AI algorithm to screen stories that is being fooled by these fake news sites. It reminds me of the old site Kuro5hin and the trolls making fake news and stories there.
We are an Internet Organization that reports on news, about technology and politics and other stuff from around the world. We try to fact check every article we write with at least one reference or supporting pictures. We are not a troll site or fake news site, and we've been reporting on them to inform the public.
