    Amazing, you have “fake news” in New Zealand. It gets worse Jack, not better. The corrupt news here in the US is disgusting. I have the 3 major tv stations blocked on my tv. Refuse to watch anything on them, even shows I loved.

    I think fake news abounds everywhere, in the quest for eyeballs via clickbait. I recently spotted this one in the UK via Twitter, and I can confirm that it is absolutely false. (The fact the writer does not mention who has seen the ads, or how many people have, points to that.) At least many of your media are owned locally. We have foreigners meddling in ours, and they tend to be the ones who hire talking heads who aim to divide, such as the case you read here. I cited The New York Times as an example but there was plenty of junk our journalists were spreading over the weekend through foreign-owned media and Twitter. In our case, it’s mostly the right-leaning ones who are doing this.
