Another great video by @lonelysandwich:
@jimmy_wales, founder of Wikipedia, and team are taking on fake, clickbait news with a hybrid wiki + journalism model. We need this today more than ever before. It reminds me a bit of @mg's Circa (RIP) but with more of a crowdsourced bent.

@rrhoover @lonelysandwich @jimmy_wales @mg Good luck! Fake news needs to disappear. And fast.
When the servers crash 20 minutes after being hunted... the power of Product Hunt!

@__zinger__ "the" server ;) poor lonely server
As a journalism student this is extremely exciting. No one in the news field really has any idea of how to fix things, but this feels like an attempt worth making. Other sites have been simply shifting little bits of the plans they've been using for years, or have been implementing interface hostile popups —which hasn't really hasn't proven itself as a solution. Even if WikiTribune doesn't go anywhere, or the community portion ends up being toxic, this is someone trying with a fresh approach in a field that desperately needs someone to.

This is gonna be such a thing. Can't wait to see where this goes from here. Best of luck @jimmy_wales!
Whoops! I think we pretty much hugged it to death!
