Vast majority of people can't identify fake news

Fascinating stuff. Even more so that the majority of people fooled were Democrats and Independents.

I wish it was like in the early days of television when they would go.. "And now, a word from our sponsor.." It's easy to miss the transition to commercial because it is near seamless at times.

interesting take on the article. did you read it? nowhere did i see (read it twice) anything you claim. it DID say that the majority of people fooled were older, less educated, and read the news primarily for entertainment. it also said that most people that detected the fake were younger & better educated. want to guess which of these descriptions points at average voters of which political party?

So, the general public lacks critical thinking skills.

Such a small sampling, 738 people, lol

no, i saw the graph. it shows how people that participated in the poll identified as to party. it DOES NOT show that those were the percentages of people that could not tell real from fake news. perhaps a refresher course in reading comprehension might be in your future?

Did you start this thread to complain about how other people can't read any more and then get distracted by the big, eye catching graphic along the way? Are you serious or is this some kinda comedy routine?
There used to be some good guerrilla theater acts in the parking lots at the dead shows in the 1980s, the group of hippies fighting over the last quaalude was my favorite, big respect if you were involved in that one.
