A new article from Recode points out that when you hear “fake news,” you’re most likely to hear it from a company that’s trying to manipulate your perception of the world.
It’s a bit like listening to an old-school radio station that is playing old recordings of a 1950s radio show and hoping for the best.
If you don’t want to listen to those recordings, you can buy the actual radio show from its current location on iTunes.
And if you do, you might find that the radio station has been around for decades, and you may be hearing the same tunes.
The difference is that in the case of fake news, it’s an intentional manipulation.
Recode’s analysis is based on more than a dozen studies that tracked media outlets across the web, and they point to one of the biggest problems plaguing the fake news problem: The ability of some media outlets to create the illusion of “real” news that people can trust.
And the evidence they’ve found suggests that they can manipulate the perception of reality in ways that can affect your perception and the perception that others have of you.
As I said, the studies are all quite large and all quite different, and there are many, many studies that show how it’s done, but they all point to the same conclusion: The real problem isn’t fake news.
The real issue is the media companies who do it.
When I say that fake news is a problem, I’m not talking about fake news being intentionally created by a media organization.
That’s not what I mean by “fake,” of course.
That would be like me saying that fake people are dangerous and should be arrested.
What I’m talking about is fake news that is intentionally created and spread by media outlets.
The problem isn`t that there aren’t some truly trustworthy news organizations.
I think it`s the media organizations that create the false impression that there is a lot of trust in the press and in the media.
The problem is that the fake is created and spreads by media organizations who are not only willing to spread it, but willing to use it as a weapon to harm their competitors.
