No More Fake News Flag on Facebook...It Was Click Bait

Facebook is discontinuing use of its "fake news" flag, because it was wildly successful... as click bait. More people than ever started visiting and reading what FB called "fake news."

Fake news is nothing new. It's always been everywhere: social media, TV, radio, newspapers, magazines, and word of mouth.

Do you want someone else (media company, government, watchdog organization, political party) to label items "fake news" -- or do you prefer to do your own research?
