Have you heard? No more prostitutes for Donald Trump. Haven’t you read about Trump's golden shower dossier with Russian prostitutes? For a fake news article, we were pretty convinced, so you just can’t deny the trolls are getting better at it. But soon, that’s all going to change. You’ll still have fake prostitute news articles popping up on your Google newsfeed, but you’ll know without even reading them whether the story is reputable or not.
With Google and other news sites taking steps to ensure that fake news is clearly labeled as fake, will we see the decline of these ridiculous "Trump prostitutes" articles? If anything, it will make the fake news more popular. We predict entire websites will emerge to create the best, most believable, and completely hysterical fake news. Whether Donald Trump has actually slept with prostitutes or not, we can’t say. Therefore, we leave it to you to speculate…
No one is quite sure yet exactly how this system of classifying each and every article will work. Google is one of many investors working with Santa Clara University on The Trust Project. Some fake Trump news about prostitutes just makes you laugh. However, fake news also has the power to ruin someone’s life with fake accusations. The fake news circulating on Google after the Texas church shooting is another example of this. We sorely need the Trust Project.
