    nah, I'm totally off news of any kind now, whether genuwyne, satirical or fake.
    Need to add political or celeb gossip to that list. Try reading non-political news that isn't about celeb gossip - nothing comes up.

    A great site to check on whether something is real or satire...

    And this one as far as bias goes...

    I'd like to see the following sites added to the list:

    gossipmillsa.com

    nationalnewsbulletin.com

    Both are promoting a fake story about Ramaphosa talking about land ownership, which never took place.

    Yeah, I saw that, and a FB friend shared it. So I told him it's fake, and he deleted the comment. Goodbye!

    I think Facebook has a much better solution than watching this thread with people reporting and blocking sites they don't want to see
    Screw this...

    Facebook thrives on fake news - more shares = more time spent on the site = more ad revenue.
