And of course it wasn't a problem until it fucked with an American election. Fake news influences the outcome in Philippines or an African nation or someplace? That's all fine for years, apparently.


I agree that fake news played a role in this year's election, what I worry about is companies like FB being held responsible for deciding what's fake and what's real. Talk to me about that process, cuz it sounds real messy


I agree with Havas as well...I think the bigger problem is when did facebook become our primary source of news?


^^ absolutely agree with the above. Gonna be messier to have Facebook deciding what's real and what's fake.

As absurd as it sounds, there has to be some sort of Fact Police, and fines levied against publications that used blatantly false facts in news reporting. I'm not talking about opinion pieces... but factually false articles and publishers behind them,

I think it became the primary source of political news for uneducated folks ... And then the fake news took advantage of that, and a dumbo was elected president. Thanks for the foreshadowing, Mike Judge

Seems like the “Financial Analyst” role is just a new title for Accountant. I’m on my third interview for a Senior Financial Analyst position but the job description seems to be a mixture of both general accounting activities but also financial statement analysis. Is this a trap? Or is it truly a hybrid finance/accounting role?

To white people and non-black POC:

How has this changed you (if at all)? What are your future plans to sustain current efforts towards racial equality in your individual, personal life? How do you plan to move when this is no longer trending and there’s no one judging you for being silent on socials?

As a black person, I’m very wary of this being a passing fancy for many. For us, it’s inescapable, unrelenting, everyday real life. I want to hear about what you will do when the mass fervor dies.
