In a clearcut case of an ironically bearded hipster fox guarding the henhouse of truth, Slate presents a brand new extension that Chrome users can install. The tool not only identifies “fake news” but allows readers to narc on anything they don’t like.
Of course, anyone who would accept a word that Slate has to say as “truth” is so far left-leaning that they’re about ready to topple over, and will report a lot of true things they just don’t like as “fake.” We all know that in their eyes “fake” and “something I don’t like” are identical in definition, and that definition has nothing to do with the act of thinking critically.
Help us stop the spread of fabricated news.
“Pope Francis Shocks World, Endorses Donald Trump.” “WikiLeaks CONFIRMS Hillary Sold Weapons to ISIS.” These stories and a whole lot more blew up on social media in the run-up to Election Day, spreading misinformation and drowning out legitimate news sources.
That’s why we built This Is Fake. This tool both identifies articles in your Facebook feed that intentionally spread misinformation and allows you to tell your friends when they’re sharing a fake story. When you connect This Is Fake to your Facebook account, you can also flag fabricated stories for our moderators. Be a good citizen of the internet and help the truth rise to the top of your Facebook news feed.
Wow, I bet everyone’s friends will really LOVE it when someone says, “Waaah…Take it down…Slate says your story is fake!”
