The US President also criticized the way fake news is disseminated on social networks
After months of anticipation, the US presidential election has come to an end today, a process that has been marked by various news reports for the two candidates with information that, as Obama notes, can not always be taken for granted.
The US president also spoke at the University of Michigan yesterday in support of Hillary Clinton.
Obama has talked about “the crazy conspiracy theories” that often pop up on social networks, “repeated attacks and blatant lies that, as long as they are on Facebook and people can see them, some people start to believe them. It creates a lot of lies. ”
Although not all can be classified as false information, a recent BuzzFeed investigation has denounced groups that are responsible for creating stories in favor of Republican candidate Donald Trump, which becomes viral after publication and end up disseminating false information.
