Fake News InfoManager : Paramedia and the woes of social media!

fake_news_header

InfoManager : what's new online We started warning everyone about this in 2012. And, more recently we’ve turned up the heat on all click-bait and fake news sites!
      Even President Barack Obama addressed the issue of fake news stories going viral on Facebook and its role in galvanizing support for Donald Trump’s successful run for the presidency. But hey : the pot don’t call the kettle black . . . Obama was elected by Fake News too — we screamed and screamed at people spreading click bait and fake news throughout the last three elections! (Over fourteen years!) But nobody listens to us, and we’ve got such a small readership the fake-news media rolled right over us.
      Now, somebody else has noticed, and they’re making a stink about how it’s influenced the elections. Of course with any digital, online phenomena, the InfoManager is there. Here’s just the tip of the iceberg . . . .
