Many of what was read in class puts a lot of the blame of the â€œrise of fake newsâ€ squarely on social media platforms like facebook and twitter. Others have found itâ€™s a â€œmixedâ€ blame between users and the platforms. Still others argue that it all comes down to â€œhuman choiceâ€ and it is the decisions that we personally make that have created such a disinformative media environment.
What argument would you make? Who (or what) is to blame for the rise of fake news and our current situation? For this question, you must cite at least 3 sources.
