This story was really interesting, as well.

http://www.npr.org/sections/alltechconsidered/2016/11/23/503146770/npr-finds-the-head-of-a-covert-fake-news-operation-in-the-suburbs

Fake news has escalated to an actual social problem.

To be fair, tabloids were already doing this long before this racket went online

EDIT:
And the tabloids are also, of course, still doing this. Every time I'm in the checkout line at the supermarket I have to look at some headline alledging that Obama is a communist muslim who's in this country illegally and possibly alsp some kind of lizard.

It is an unfortunate fact that every man who seeks to disseminate knowledge must contend not only against ignorance itself, but against false instruction as well. No sooner do we deem ourselves free from a particularly gross superstition, than we are confronted by some enemy to learning who would plunge us back into the darkness -H.P.Lovecraft

He who fights with monsters must take care lest he thereby become a monster -Nietzsche

Unfortunately the weekly world news, which was the best of them, seems to have gone out of business.

Turns out the GOP might have gotten too greedy.  They included in the ACA repeal the defunding of planned parenthood.  This will cost them 2 republican votes, and they already lost Rand Paul for other reasons.

which means they may have to try again.
