The fake news has taken over the internet and social networks, wherever we are connected there is some forum or some bad intentional person posting or commenting something that is not real and this also happens in poker.
The main challenge now in addition to reading the news is to have to seek to know if you are not mistaken.
Poker happens to be quite harmless to fake news because there are many players who by the way are unsuccessful so to take revenge they generate content to generate falsehoods about a particular site.
At the time I recommend giving credits to the already respected forums like cardchat and besides when reading about anything related to poker, I recommend them to check the information with other people or professional forum.
It is simple - fact check your sources. Double check your facts. Seems to me most respected media outlets do that, despite being labelled 'fake news'. Therefore, do not dismiss news based solely on the source. LOOK AT THE FACTS.
No Brazil has just fainted through the false news. The candidate who has the highest number of votes had a greater number of votes over the number of millions of dollars for sending new false actions, the case being investigated by the federal federation and supreme court.
I must ask. Do you honestly believe this? Or are you being a poker player and misrepresenting your thoughts?
Now for the important question. On what do you base your statement regarding the word "MOST"? Are you suggesting that a 30 minute local TV news cast is mostly fake news?
When it comes to 'breaking news', the first reports out of a major catastrophic event, you might have a point. Everyone rushes to report what happened and get it out first. This leads to errors or fake news. However, most reputable news organizations pride themselves on the accuracy of their reports.
