Where does the list of sites that are deemed "fake news" come from?

@jameskoole yeah this runs a thin line between curating and censorship.
Tom Masiero — GM of LaunchBit
@jameskoole Agreed.. Hopefully it doesn't come from the list mentioned in this video

Problem is, only people who are conscientious about fake news are liable to use these tools. This leads to a subset of the population who, while "protected" from fake news, but doesn't see what's influencing others. Not necessarily a good thing!
@ryanjamurphy Agreed! And mostly conscientious people won't need these tools because if they are, it means they are skeptic enough to question and do fact checks... This kind of tools are good proof-of-concept so that Facebook/Google/etc put their act together...
