Youtube - The Real Fake News Cess Pool
Quote | Reply
While doing the ol' diy research thing I made the mistake of being click baited and watched part of idiot video. Now most of my feed is echo chamber bullshit, most of which is idiot's spewing garbage that's not even real. One more link to that race baiting Ezra Levant twit and I think I'm going to punch my laptop screen.

I was friends with someone on Facebook that I kind of sorta knew for about a week. She was constantly posting amazing investigative journalism in the form of YT videos. I think she actually believed the stuff. So over the top, made Infowars appear coherent.

It was amusing but I had to unfriend her so I wouldn't be tempted to give those guys traffic.

We are so fucked.

I hate Youtube for that - it's barely usable; if you clear your history, you get nothing good, but if you watch one "type" of video - clickbait or other - then your feed is polluted...

I think the fake news bullshit aspect of youtube is troubling...kids spend too much time clicking from crap to crap to crappier, before developing any critical thinking skills... have the conversations I have with my teenage boy are setting him straight about "an article" he saw online...

Good thing the Lavender Room isn't anything like that...

Yeah, man. Kids these days are too stupid to weed out the BS. We should restrict access to information. They really should only be exposed to State approved media.

I know you are being sarcastic about kids.
The problem is that there really are people who cant weed out BS. The poorly read adults who once were the target audience of National Enquirer or the beffuddled 70 year old grandpas sitting in front of their laptops, eating KFC and stroking their blond toupees.

Have you seen the cube earth theory? It explains both flat earth and round earth.

Also the huge tree thing is awesome.

Yeah, that's what I said...

It should read 'half the conversations'... I'm glad your boy is as brilliant a bullshit detector as you are, high five or fist bump or something...
