How Russia Helped Elect Donald Trump Using Fake News On Facebook
This week, it was revealed that Russian funded fake news stories were spread to as many as 70 million Americans on Facebook during the 2016 Presidential campaign.
So, how does this happen? Let me explain.
It starts with websites. Websites that look like real news sites… but are really spreading fake news. PolitiFact has been keeping a list… and right now, they count more than 200 fake news sites.
So, who owns these sites? Most of them are registered anonymously – and it’s difficult to find out who operates them, and what their motives are.
