The Trump Campaign Has Compared the U.S. President to Thanos, a Mass Murderer

In what can only be described as an unsurprising turn of events, Donald Trump’s campaign has likened the president of the United States to Thanos, the depraved villain from Marvel’s comics, television series and film franchise whose whole schtick is wanting to murder billions of people because he’s obsessed with death. To be fair, both people have unhealthy relationships with their respective daughters, but that’s neither here nor there. Read More >>

Facebook Could Rig The General Election… And We Wouldn’t Even Notice

“Don't chuck Britain in the Cor-Bin” is the headline on the front of The Sun today, as Britain goes to the polls. “Lies, damned lies and Theresa May”, is the Mirror’s counter - instead urging readers to vote Labour.

How Much is Facebook to Blame?

Throughout this year’s presidential campaign, journalists have focused, correctly, on the power of Facebook to shape, distort, and ultimately control the news and information that inform and educate voters. They’ve written dozens of stories about the proliferating number of anonymous, low-rent websites that publish bombastic and clearly inaccurate stories designed to spread throughout Facebook’s platform as quickly as possible. Because so many of those stories were so heavily slanted toward the Republican nominee, some of those very same journalists are now beginning to blame Facebook, rather than actual voters, for yesterday’s earth-shaking election of Donald Trump.
