2 guys in an apartment
I must admit I didn't understand the whole "fake news" phenomenon that was spreading on facebook during the election. I saw the occasional easy-to-disprove story, but I never really thought about where those stories were coming from. I tracked down the most recent bogus story--the one about Hillary supposedly going bonkers after she lost--which is totally untrue, but was sent to me more than a dozen times. Where did it come from?
I'm constantly hearing that you can't trust the mainstream media because they are so slanted and biased. And I hear it from people who believe stuff written by two guys in an apartment who are literally making stuff up.
