Posted March 02, 2019 11:00am PST In a story headlined “Media Is Wasting Money On Fake News”, the “Fake News” section of Reddit was rife with posts from “fake news” news sites such as Breitbart and The Drudge Report.
One user wrote: “Fake news outlets like Breitbart are making their money by spreading false information about the United States and their corporate sponsors.
The media is wasting money on fake news sites like this.
They should be ashamed of themselves.
How can they even make money from such nonsense?”
Other users shared their own experiences with the misinformation spread on the sites.
One user said: “We were told the new president has been inaugurated by his cabinet.
I’m not sure if I would have believed it had I been a little more skeptical at the time.”
Another wrote: “‘The President’ is the only person in the White House that has a title on the wall and that title is a fake title.
It’s the fake president and it’s a fake cabinet name.
The president and cabinet are a lie.””
The media has wasted millions of dollars to make this a story about fake news and propaganda.
The American people deserve to know that the truth is out there.”
A third user commented: “I don’t think the media is really interested in the truth or the facts.
They want to have their money.
I don’t know if this is a good thing or a bad thing, but they are not doing their job as journalists.”Read more
