It is now clear that Russian intelligence agents worked overtime harvesting Internet meme stories off of “social media” and rebranded them in an attempt to influence the outcome of the 2016 presidential election.

Fearing that this practice has opened our elections to outside manipulation I have invested just over  4.2 milliseconds of my precious time to come up with a solution. Here it is:

People need to stop consulting Facebook for news.

That’s it.

I went a bit farther. I deleted my Facebook account (at least on the surface, apparently they store away all of your information in hidden locations to read late at night under their blanket).

Really, people! Facebook? For news? I understand that the “normal channels” for acquiring news have become compromised by corporate and political interests, but Facebook? Have you really considered what the name of the service implies? (Hint: it is site catering to narcicists.)
