    David,

    I agree that reliance on Facebook "news" is limited and skewed. Made up stories with pizzazz race through it as they formerly did when email was new and why fact checking rumors on SNOPES became popular.

    The other night, as she went to commercial, Rachel Madow asked her viewers to please immediately sign up for a paid subscription to their local newspaper. We all suffer without this media. What has happened in this presidential election is a result of the weakening of the watchdog role of reporters coinciding with the increased dumbing down of the public.

    Not sure we can blame Facebook as much as the people who read what they see there--or anywhere--without vetting the source and bias of the writer or speaker.

    David Reich

    I agree Jeanne. Too many people forget that you can't always rely on what you see online, even when a post cites a supposedly legitimate source. It's too easy to twist things or out-and-out lie online.
