When it comes to getting political coverage on Facebook, the mainstream media is not always a good fit.
The news media has struggled to explain how and why Donald Trump won the election, but that hasn’t stopped the likes of Vox, The New York Times, CNN, The Wall Street Journal and many other outlets from publishing fake news.
And while the American media has been criticized for using fake news and spreading misleading information, there is an emerging cottage industry of fake news writers, social media activists and influencers that is helping spread the fake news craze.
“There are people in our industry that are actually helping push fake news,” said John Heilemann, founder and CEO of the non-profit Center for Media and Democracy.
In the past year, fake news has grown by a third and fake news sites are now used as a medium for promoting fake news stories and propagating the fake information.
There are now over 700 fake news websites in existence, and their combined traffic has tripled since the election.
While the mainstream news media is no longer the only way to get news, it is one of the most powerful tools for spreading fake news, said Heileman.
This year, the fake-news craze is taking a new direction, however.
Fake news sites that are promoting fake stories and pushing fake content have become popular.
“They’re just starting to see that the mainstream outlets aren’t reporting on them,” said Heikemann.
“I don’t think they understand that they’re getting it from people who have very little experience.”
Heilemann said the rise of fake stories on Facebook has given the fake stories an outlet.
He’s also seeing more and more fake news promoted on Facebook by people with real-world political experiences.
“It’s a very powerful tool for spreading misinformation and promoting false information,” said Theodoros Cegielski, who runs a site called FakeNews, which is part of a larger social media network called Fake News Generation.
“There’s this kind of narrative that is being spread, but they’re not really telling the story.”
Cegileski has a Facebook page, Fake News, which has over 2 million followers.
He says he sees fake news on the page often.
“A lot of people will say, ‘I don [ve] seen it, but I know it’s on Facebook.’
But it’s not.
It’s not,” said Cegiselski.
“That’s the challenge, you have to tell the story and explain the facts.”
Facebook is not the only place where fake news is being promoted.
On Twitter, for example, fake accounts have been using hashtags such as #PizzaGate and #Pizzagate, which refers to a fake investigation into a restaurant in New York City, to spread their fake news content.
The accounts have also posted about the PizzaGate conspiracy theory and the fact that it was a fake story, as well as claiming to have obtained video evidence that proves the alleged sexual assault occurred.
The hashtag #POTUSfake is also used to promote fake news articles and to promote conspiracy theories about President Donald Trump and his administration.
“There is this kind.
of narrative and a lot of stories, which are very hard to disprove.
But the people behind it are doing that,” said Jack D. Johnson, an editor at The American Conservative.
“What they are doing is spreading this kind, this kind and this kind that is actually very dangerous.”
Fake news is also being promoted by people who use their real-life connections to spread fake stories.
“In the age of social media, fake stories are gaining popularity, and people are not reporting on it,” said Johnson.
“We are seeing people who actually have real political and personal connections to these sites spreading these kinds of stories.”
The problem with fake news comes down to the fact many people don’t report on it, said Johnson, because of the fear of losing their real lives and having their information spread.
Johnson said the biggest problem is that fake news spreads in ways that can be easily misunderstood by people.
“You’re not going to tell a friend, ‘Hey, I just saw this,'” said Johnson when asked why people are sharing fake news in their news feeds.
“You’re going to have to be very careful not to spread that story to your friends or to your family.”
“It’s important to note that fake stories aren’t necessarily just coming from people on social media,” said D.K. Johnson.
Some fake news that has spread on Facebook and other platforms has been debunked by fact-checking websites and social media users, like the one shared by The Washington Post.
The Washington Times, a Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative news website, says its data proves that the fake accounts linked to the account have been suspended.
The Post also reported that several fake news accounts had been suspended in the past week, though they have not been confirmed by Facebook.
Johnson called it “an alarming
