Sweaty Facebook minions have been staying up all night, feverishly deleting all of the “fake news” (previously known as “lies”) that CEO Mark Zuckerberg used to great success in getting Donald Trump elected President. Republicans in general and Trump in particular have proven especially adept at using outright lies to get their point across.
While publicly Zuckerberg rejects the “crazy idea” that his fake news swayed voters, in private he is clearly nervous that the sheer volume of outright lies being peddled for profit by his social media platform will leave him open to law suits. Both Facebook and Google say that they are developing new tools to reduce the ocean of lies that the interned is mired in. Maybe a tad late?
