I am certainly in favor of getting rid of what I perceive as "fake news"; those sidebar ads that have those "shocking" headlines designed to draw in "clickers", which, of course, pays ad-revenue.
Somehow, it seems a lot like "sucker-bait"; ok, I guess I must be a 'sucker', right? Me, and a whole lot of other folks.
But, there's much more to this whole idea of "fakeness", in my (humble) opinion. I think we're living in a time (and culture/society) in which we've become so wrapped up in "fakeness" in so many venues and on so many levels...that we're spinning out of control, y'know?
