The Reality of Fake News
Of all the things that have come along with the campaign and Presidency of Donald Trump – gah, every time I say President Trump I feel my blood pressure rise – the most egregious in my opinion is the proliferation of fake news.
Fake news has always been around. Tabloids are full of it. Some countries deal in it but we call it propaganda. Now there’s an American President (there goes my blood pressure again) who uses his own definition of fake news and people, by the millions, believe him. It’s dangerous to real news and those who have the integrity and tenacity to seek the truth.
But the real problem, as I see it, are the gullible masses who believe everything they read if it fits their world view. Ergo my latest column in our London: The Fake News Fiasco. To read it, please click HERE.
