Fake News

Ken is tired of having to weed through fake news stories while online. Leo says that fake news is more than just a problem in politics. Click Bait is another version of fake news designed to drive traffic to a website to make money. Ken would like to see a fact checking plugin for the browser that would fact check an article instantly when a user clicks on it.

Leo says that has already begun. Google does it, and Facebook is working on a scheme. But what one man will consider a story fake news, another may not. That's why Leo prefers to use the term "Click Bait." That's something that everyone can agree on, regardless of political point of view.
