Thank you for that Soros quote. Sent the screenshot to a journo friend who will use your product along with an inflammatory headline to garner clicks with little regard for truth or context, clicks she wouldn’t get unless your site helped spread the misinformation because it had an incendiary headline, a few lines to feed people’s outrage addiction, an addiction your site feeds, and an addiction your site feeds on for ad revenue even at the expense of truth.
In the end that’s no big deal right? Some small click bait article won’t hurt your company and certainly could not hurt democracy or society right?
But... this is happening millions of times a day on FB. Not just untrue articles, but untrue memes and content from hate groups and Russian trolls, etc.
We’re in a world that doesn’t take time for truth or critical reasoning because of Facebook. Trump is president because of Facebook. Dictators are in power because of Facebook. Genocide is happening because of Facebook.
Please sit with that for a while before responding.
