Hopefully this is the right forum for this, a fascinating article about the near-future and present of state of fake news and an impending crisis of misinformation.

Pretty scary stuff IMHO. I think I'd rather a more straightforward Cameronian rise of the machines scenario where at least there's bad robots to punch and shoot.
... and has the advantage that the 'bad guys' are readily identifiable.

Very scary scenarios played out there!!

Back on topic.

This phenomenon has been with us for sometime now - masquerading as forms of propaganda. This is a finessed trend.

We as consumers of information and content should be more discerning and questioning of where our content comes from and why we dine on such content.

We also need to educate our kids and grandkids about this and make them as aware of it as possible from an early age.

Cruimh's real porn stash consists of cookbooks! :)
They take your cook books after your News and Porn.

I'm confess I'm disturbed that Cruimh may be more disturbed by losing his Darina Allens and Mary Berrys than his free "content"!
