SOCIAL MEDIA WILL START TO DIE AS IT ONLY READERS WILL BE FACT RESISTANT HUMANS

I read a lot.  Democrats come at me for pointing out the endless fake stories on Occupy Democrats.  With so much Republican nonsense why do you have to make up stories?


"The research, conducted by the University of Minnesota, identifies a virulent strain of humans who are virtually immune to any form of verifiable knowledge, leaving scientists at a loss as to how to combat them."

Mark Zuckerberg of FB is doing his best to clear FB of all of the fake news.  .

My hat off to Mark Zuckerberg.  If he cleanses FB of all of the fake news and misleading stories, FB will become a major source of reliable news stories. The fact I check out stories for truthfulness informs you I am not fact challenged.  Oh, I may love a headline, and say "great" and then when I check it out it is either misleading or outright false.  That source becomes dead to me as not trustworthy.

This story in the New Yorker is telling for several reasons.  It explains the election of Donald Trump, and why 80% of the American people did not like the choice between Donald and Hillary.  Some of this is because people researched the truth and got to the facts, and othesr just went with the lies because the lies fit their preconceived notions.

Social media better adjust.  There are two type readers.  The soap opera reader who reads for a good laugh and to see people they dislike humiliated in social media, the others are the fact seekers. The fact seekers will win out, and in time change social media.  Mark Zuckerberg is making this a high profile issue, and things will change for  the better.
