I do not see how this ends well. The propensity to fabricate scandal in order to achieve an electoral result has already been shown. A strong candidate may be able to shake it off, but we are quickly looking at a n electoral war of false stories drowning out actually listening to what the candidate had to say.
Last presidential campaign it was literally impossible to read anywhere a text of the Trump stump speech. Why not? You get my point. Yet when it became possible to actually sit down and listen to a full speech, you were not disappointed.
May i then ask a question? Who needs a media that refuses to cover the news at all? And then makes crap up? In response the alternate media has been forced to become strident.
The conversion of Facebook into a purveyor of political propaganda is completely unwelcome. It is bad enough for individual players to beat the drums but then they are obvious as well. Having the platform itself adopt a bias is a problem.
