Fake News? Reader Be Educated.

I know two posts in one day. However, this perturbs me that people are upset with “fake News.” Uh, whose responsibility is it to fact-check, to understand, to be informed. The reader. While it would be nice if the writer would do it, greed has overtaken reporting the facts, and nothing but the facts.

Social media has made gullible even more important than just the facts too. I have absolutely no problem with any CEOs, administrators of social media sites, or other posting people/corporations. I am the only one responsible for believing what I read. And if I cannot verify a story, if there is only one source stating what I read, then I doubt. further I go to websites that fact-check for me. From there I follow-up with their citations and then maybe then I might repost or believe. But trust everything I read on the Internet?  Are you kidding me? Oh you are not.
