The Daily Beast reports:The new media landscape has created an incredible opportunity for anyone to write about what they think is real news.
But for many people who have no way to access this information, the ability to access it is the very definition of a free market.
That’s because a new kind of “fake news” is now in the news: “fake” news that is not true.
“I think the problem with the fake news is that people have been very quick to call it fake news, and people have taken it seriously,” said Matt Voskicek, co-founder of the news site Vox.
“And so they’ve made the assumption that it’s going to be accurate.”
Vox reported that there were over 1,500 reports of fake news in the last 12 months, and Vox Media has received over 300,000 requests to remove fake news from its site.
Vosckikss company Vox Media, which has been around for 20 years, recently announced a partnership with the University of Washington to publish “fake-news facts” on its website.
Voz said that they were going to publish information about the U.S. Census, and their research will be used to inform the next iteration of the UAW.
“This is one of the biggest issues we’ve had on the news cycle for decades,” Vosko says.
Vox Media has also created a new tool called the Real News Database to provide people with a place to find news stories that have been completely debunked.
Vox Media says that they are looking into ways to create a similar tool for the upcoming presidential election.
“There are a lot of stories that we’re seeing that are so patently false that it would take a whole book to debunk them,” Voz told The Daily Dot.
“So we want to be able to take those stories and put them out there and then people can find them.”
Vosko also said that Vox Media will be “working to create more of a community around the news and provide a platform for people to share news and information.”
Viz has also launched an initiative called “Facts on the Ground,” which aims to help people find the truth on the ground.
He said that the idea of Fact On the Ground was born out of a desire to provide an outlet for people who want to share their opinions on important issues and issues they care about.
“We know that the American public has been deeply affected by the news media’s coverage of the 2016 election,” Vosa says.
“We’ve seen a lot more people turn to social media and other online platforms for information on the 2016 campaign than we’ve seen before.”
In fact, Vox Media’s research found that the “most shared content on Facebook during the 2016 presidential election was a fact-check on a Democratic candidate.”
The platform also found that “about half of the most shared content that was shared on Twitter during the presidential campaign was a debunking of a false news story.”
Vosa added that they also found a correlation between a “share” of the “news” that is created by Facebook and a rise in false news.
“Facebook is really important for our audience because we have a ton of news on Facebook, and we are very popular,” Vosek said.
“But Facebook is also a really important platform for us to reach our audience and reach out to people who are interested in our content and our politics.
It is really a good platform for our journalism to reach people.”
Voskis own business, Vox Pop Up, is a content aggregator for media content, as well as a way for people like him to share content from Vox Media.
“I think we’re really seeing a very rapid change in the way we consume news, in the digital era,” Vosesk said in a statement.
“It is really exciting to see a growing number of news sites and social media platforms taking this as a mission to help our audience find and share content they think will be useful and meaningful.”
