This Chrome extension will warn you when you visit a fake news site
Fake News Alert flags misleading sites across the internet.
The "Fake News Alert" Chrome extension, created by New York magazine journalist Brian Feldman, joins the B.S. Detector Chrome extension launched Tuesday that identifies hoax news articles on Facebook.
Both extensions rely on a manual list of sites likely to contain false information presented as news.
Fake News Alert uses a list of misleading websites compiled by a media studies professor. The list includes hoax sites like Breitbart and InfoWars as well as satirical sites like ClickHole that could confuse some readers.
Anybody else find it interesting/frightening that Breitbart is considered bogus by both of these and yet its chairman, Stephen K. Bannon, helped run Trumps campaign. Then on Sunday, Trump named Mr. Bannon as his chief White House strategist and senior counselor.
