Moar on fake news
« on: January 12, 2019, 04:46:10 AM »

The seminal study on fake news ... was fake news.

Not really "fake" -- just wrong. And the journal that published it took a year to decide that they should retract it. I wonder if everyone who read it and believed it has seen the retraction.
