By posting fake news stories about Trump, teenagers in Veles, Macedonia, earned millions on advertising as Americans gobbled them up.

Wow. I feel like any conspiracy theory, fake news story, etc., as long as it's out there in cyber space, about 50% of people will buy it.
With a name like Smucker's, it has to be god.

It would be funnier if there weren't serious real-world consequences.

Fake news is a distraction, it has been around for awhile, if it helped it was negligible, The real issue was Clinton, her husband and Obama both told her she needed to talk to the people, instead she talked to the wealthy, the corporations, and ignored the blue collar workers. Trump talked to them and told them what they wanted to hear and stole the Democratic base out from under the Democratic party. But hey keep blaming everyone and everything else it is easier that way, but be prepared to keep losing until you take a look at yourself.
The truth may be out there, but the lies are inside your head.
