A breeding ground for
conspiracy theories
a mix of truth and
fake news generator
it’s a game of cat-and-mouse
for social media sites
fighting fakes from their sofas
to exert control over the population
from the dark corners of the internet
potentially dangerous misinformation
slapping that down
such claims are not supported
they don’t know it’s not true
undermine information
efforts to remove it
viewed millions of times
constantly re-uploading
in an effort to bypass
the gatekeepers of free speech
