What is Fake News?

Fake news is not news you disagree with. In fact, it is not news at all.

"Based on the acclaimed book by media scholar Robert McChesney, DIGITAL DISCONNECT examines the ongoing attack on net neutrality and the concept of an open internet by telecom monopolies like Comcast and Verizon; explores how internet giants like Facebook and Google have amassed huge profits by surreptitiously collecting our personal data and selling it to advertisers; and shows how these tech and telecom monopolies have routinely colluded with the national security state to advance covert mass surveillance programs."
