The story that everyone loves to tell, but which is largely unverifiable, is that the internet has turned the world upside down.
That’s what we’ve been told by the media and the political class for so long.
But what is this fake news that has been promoted by the likes of Facebook, Google, Twitter and other giants that has become a pervasive part of our daily lives, the news that no one should have to worry about, if they have any doubts?
I’m here to tell you it’s a myth, and it’s wrong.
I’ve spent most of my career doing what I know best, which is to do the right thing and to help people.
I’m not a politician, I’m a scientist, and I’ve been on the frontline of the world’s greatest social media platform for nearly four decades.
A big part of that experience was that people would believe whatever I said, whether it was about climate change, the war on drugs or a global conspiracy.
But now, because of fake news and misinformation on Facebook and other social media, we are in the midst of a war against our minds and our souls.
There are two sides to every story, and we’re seeing this in America as well.
We are living in a fake news epidemic, and the news has gone viral, becoming a staple of our news feeds.
It’s the same story across the world, including on the social media platforms, where stories are being spun and the quality of information has declined.
We live in a world where news is being hijacked by corporate media and political parties, and our government is being infiltrated by shadowy forces and foreign interests, according to a new report.
This is not about fake news.
It’s about control, said Dr Matthew Biederman, a forensic scientist at Harvard Medical School.
People are increasingly fed fake news to manipulate them, said Biedeman, who has worked on the issue for more than a decade.
What they’re feeding into is a state of denial, which allows people to feel comfortable saying what they want to hear, while ignoring evidence and fact that contradicts their opinions.
As a result, the world has become increasingly insecure and fearful.
Biederman said he believes people are being duped into thinking the news is true.
“People are in denial about the true threat posed by this information,” he said.
‘Fake news’ is a new term that was coined in December by a British journalist and social media analyst.
It has become the term of choice in the United States, where politicians and their allies have used it to label fake news stories and to label those who question them as enemies of the state.
Since the term was first used, a new Facebook account has been set up that promotes the phrase and features an image of the president.
The term has also been used in other countries, including in Australia, where an Australian government website and Facebook page have adopted it to describe stories that are misleading, divisive or sensational.
The term has become so pervasive that many Americans believe that it’s been coined by a conspiracy theorist, according the Southern Poverty Law Center, a Washington-based anti-hate group.
One example of fake information is a Facebook post in which an American blogger claimed the United Nations was a globalist conspiracy.
Another was a false story about the alleged murder of a woman in South Carolina by her boyfriend.
Fake news has also come under fire from social media users, who are demanding that Facebook remove its fake news page and ban users from sharing it.
They’ve even gone so far as to demand that Facebook delete a post by the comedian and former presidential candidate Kathy Griffin, who mocked President Donald Trump.
In March, a woman who claimed to have lived with President Trump said the president had a physical disability and a brain tumor.
Facebook said it was investigating the post.
Facebook’s chief executive Mark Zuckerberg told reporters at the time that fake news is a problem for all of us, and that he and other top executives had “thought about” banning it.
Zuckerberg said the company had been working with government agencies, and would take steps to take down fake news if it became public.
While the term has gained popularity, it has become controversial, and its use is not limited to Facebook.
And that has raised questions about what can be done about it, especially as the Internet becomes ever more global and people become increasingly connected.
