Apple CEO Tim Cook: 'Fake news' is 'killing people's minds'

 

Apple CEO Tim Cook has a dire warning about the effects of "fake news."

 

"We are going through this period of time right here where unfortunately some of the people that are winning are the people that spend their time trying to get the most clicks, not tell the most truth," the technology leader told the Daily Telegraph. He added that these faux reports are "killing people's minds in a way."

 

The proliferation of fake news is a burgeoning issue, most notably during the 2016 election, thanks in large part to sharing on social media. The phenomenon has led to politicians on both sides of the aisle to complain that these misleading stories have been damaging. Both Hillary Clinton and former President Barack Obama blamed fake news, in part, for Clinton's loss in the presidential election to President Trump.

 

Cook pinned the responsibility of curbing fake news on technology companies...

    So it looks like that “cooked” moron wants to be the gatekeeper for the “news” now!?

    I always wondered why Steve Jobs picked him as his COO.

      Well, Steve Jobs was a new age liberal, so he must have known that the gay agenda was the dominant agenda when he died. But he clearly did not foresee the Trump era…

        Are you sure it is dominant? How is it possible for less than 1% to dominate the nation?

            Liberals planning to impeach Trump when they win the mid-term in two years.

            That’s what they are looking forward to and working towards: a mid-term election landslide in 2018 when Democrats win back the House and the Senate in a landslide. Frankly, I don’t like the smell of the GOP. Two of them voted against Devos. God knows how many Trump-haters there are in the shadows. I can spot three more from a thousand yards out: McCain, Lindsey Graham and Rubio.

              Are you also going delusional now!?
