The President labels it fake news. The mainstream media colludes to editorialize that they aren’t fake. And now social media is eyeing a trustworthiness score on individuals who frequently post.
It’s all in the eye of the beholder… what is true, fake, trustworthy… and the beholder is an algorithm… a computer code colander of sorts….that increasingly only lets through what the programmer wants you to see. How is this an open exchange of ideas, thought, discussion?
One online conservative publication tried a search of the name Trump. Of the top 100 returns on the search? …… 90% were “progressive” sites or reports, highly critical of Trump. On your screens and those of your children every waking hour…..if 90% is a cacophony of single viewpoint…. How knowledgeable are you….really?
