Fake News and Joe Rogan

"If you don't read the newspaper, you're uniformed. If you read the newspaper you're misinformed." - Mark Twain 

I've been wondering if "fake news" is more prevalent today simply because people have better access to fact checking capabilities? Which of course makes you wonder how much of what was printed in the past was "fake news".

What really pushed me to post this was this article, Can Joe Rogan Save Journalism Before Its Too Late?  Basically there's been a petition to have Rogan moderate a Presidential Debate because people are fed up with partisan "journalists" with agendas. Rogan smartly wants no part of moderating a Presidential Debate. Which reminds me of this line:

"They'll say 'Save us" and I'll look down and whisper 'No'."  - Rorschach
