AP News fact checking

Post by AArdvark » Sat Aug 31, 2019 3:17 am

AP News has this weekly fact checking article that debunks all the misinformation being spread on social media. Weekly. That's how much garbage is being spread around for everyone. Just another reason why I left social media. A lot of it isn't political either, just misinformation. We do live in a world of assholes, don't we.

Just weekly? That's all? Given what I've seen on the Internet, let's go back to sleep until they get it right. AP needs to publish that along with "On This Day," a seven-days-a-week listing of everything that happened on that day of the year, similar to what you'd see on Wikipedia's listing for, say, February 15.
