I tweeted this an hour ago: I love the internet.
@rrhoover the articles aren't fake. Nothing can change information.

I built this in about an hour yesterday after reading Zuck's BS about not being able to flag fake news sites. Of course you can. It just takes having a spine to call out nonsense. This is just a proof of concept at this point, but it works well enough.

@selfagency May I ask how do you actually detect questionable sources or simply fake news?
daniel sieradskiMaker@selfagency · @selfagency
@bluemonk482 I've compiled a list of domains that are well-known sources of fake news, conspiracy theory, innuendo, and unsourced claims. The domains cover the political spectrum from left to right and I have done my absolute best to be impartial in my selections.

@selfagency @bluemonk482 you should let others tag sources too

@afallon02 @bluemonk482 anyone can submit a pull request on github

@selfagency @bluemonk482 not very user friendly / the damage of incorrect news spreads quicker than people can generate PR's. Good work though :)

https://twitter.com/rrhoover/sta... Because of this tweet, I publicly said the thing that was floating in my head that I wanted to make something like this. Then Daniel chimed in to say he'd already done it. This is what PH and Twitter are great for.
