Mate, you were spinning what that poll actually found. Don’t try and worm out of it. We know it was about political fake news explicitly because, well, I quoted that exact passage:
about a quarter (23%) of U.S. adults say they have ever shared a fake political news story online
My four points above still stand in relation to how this poll does not support your argument.
The statement where I referred to “dopey right wing voters” was clearly a caricature of a liberal news media executive. See below. Don’t pull things out of context. You can’t even claim you misunderstood because I included a sarcastic emoji too.
Derr. That’s because Trump was elected. He was elected because dopey right wing citizens were fooled by fake news. These dopey citizens have to be schooled as to what real news is.
Wow, you’re doing it again. You’re actually changing your statement each time. What you actually said:
after fake news emerged as a significant influencer in the US election
And I’m sorry, but stating that fake news significantly influenced the US election is probably the biggest accusation you can throw out there - and you then say addressing this statement methodically is nitpicking?
