Deception on the Internet is Nothing New and it’s Getting Worse

We’re just digesting and analyzing the impact to the nation of being exposed to untruthful news stories. (Note: I’m following Dan Gillmor’s advice and not using Fake News because that term has been hijacked by Donald Trump to refer to news he disagrees with.) And while this may be the most severe example of being misled by the Internet, it’s certainly not the only. In fact, the Internet is filled with cases whose sole purpose is to trick and deceive us under the guise of offering useful information.
