Verge Called out For Fake News Deflects Using Social Justice
Fake news often uses social justice to deflect criticism but this only works when talking about abstract concepts and intangible subjects. When the Verge built a PC wrong they got called out, the producer tried to use some kind of social justice defense but it just doesn’t work when we can actually see just how your video was misleading and factually incorrect.
Imagine how this works in issues of politics and culture. If we can’t see the actual subject it’s hard to prove the story is fake or misleading.
