Are you one of the people who just goes around posting headline or stories without reading them, bitch about fake news and alternative fact and keeps posting stories, memes, quotes – what have you – without reading the story. Then you are the part problem if you are not Fact Checking.
I agree there is a FAKE NEWS problem. Adding to the problem won’t help.
People need to learn to Fact Check.
Read the headline:
Does it sound true? Feasible or Possible?
I saw a post with the headline –
“Babysitter On Crystal Meth Eats 3 Year Old Baby” (http://bit.ly/babysitterbs)
