Macedonia’s Fake News Factories | AJ+

About the author


  1. So the real story here is that Hillary's team buying sponsored content, and their well funded budget, seemed to create the loop hole, allowing cheap traffic/sponsorship to be bought cheap under the "Trump" Brand.

  2. You know something has gone horribly wrong when there are cities where the only viable means of a stable income is writing actual fake news.

  3. Looking through the comments under this video it becomes so clear how little people understand the phenomenon of fake news and how it used on people who are more susceptible to polarization.

    Wake up guy's, please stop hyper focusing on your opponents camp and look at everything objectively.

    Yes if you're on the right/conservative you are more likely to have consumed/propagated "fake news". During the 2016 election most "fake news" was geared towards promoting Donald Trump. These are facts, not let left attacking you.

  4. So who’s to say what is or isn’t fake news? The Media did fake news about Iraq having WNDs yet are somehow the ones who decide which is fake news?!?!

  5. Facebook knows how to target black people on their platform whom, share true articles outing white supremacy, quite well! They'll ban and block you in a heartbeat.

  6. Mainstream media are the same but "were" professional. However, they didn't learn about the new methods in college. People now are aware of that..

  7. There was a lot in play in the 2016 election. Fake news has existed against every candidate, that has ever existed.

    It didn’t help that Clinton had cheated on Sanders. So she left a lot of millennials behind in battlegrounds, and who decided not to vote.

    I have a feeling that Comey had a hand in swinging the election. People didn’t trust her to begin with, and he didn’t make the case much better.

    Out of all 17 GOP candidates, people wanted to elect some loud mouth guy.

    Clinton, also had another Clinton before her. In the battlegrounds that made her lose the election, Bill Clinton made NAFTA, which severely hurt those rust belt states.

    It was also very tossup who would win the 2016 election. We had a two term Democrat and it is very unlikely for any party to win a third presidential term, in a consecutive row.

    Not to mention the Supreme Court was in the hands of the incoming president.

    Now I want to warn all who didn’t vote in 2016, to Vote in 2018. If you are unhaapy, #VOTEBLUE. Send this president a message that we will not be played.

    Tell this president that Children will not be political leverage for building a wall. Tell this president, who’s boss. Let this president know, that we will not be silent.

    Millennials you are the voice of tomorrow! VOTE BLUE!! GET OUT AND VOTE BLUE!! #VOTEBLUE!

  8. Fake News is Off the Hook. Even the For the Devil. The Devil is Real and he can fake a Demon in the form of an Angel.

  9. Remember the Enquire Magazine i saved an Article on Gaint Hamster and Bill Clinton Shaking Hands with the Ailiens.👽😀

  10. Anybody who has a facebook account is an idiot to begin with, idiots cannot be protected from themselves. "Fake news" is not the problem. The problem is stupidity. There is no cure. The proof is in the oval office.

  11. Monetizing the fake accounts is the problem. Removing the fake accounts is treating the symptom and not the source of the problem. No political content, should be monetized.

  12. but fake news thing, started with United States Companies like CNN or maybe MSNBC. other people just mimic them, I mean even CNN, they still making up these Bias news, It's a media idea from the start, and now Democrat is getting a taste of their own medicine.

  13. i feel like university is supposed to teach you about life and longterm thinking so the way the university speaker is talking down on these ethical issues in front of students and almost enabling them feels like a horrible choice to me.

  14. AJ doesn't understand how advertising works. If it was cheaper to advertise on Trump that means there were less advertisers. Because the prices of ads is based on competition. This means there must have been more people advertising on Facebook for Hillary than Trump. Why aren't you freaking out about people supporting her campaign.

  15. I'm in the UK and I'm literally going to post a fake news story tomorrow or later today and promote it via FB ads. EVERYBODY does it. 😀 This is the interwebz.

  16. 0:55 HOLD ON A MOMENT! It's not yet called North Macedonia. I hate it when "news channels" do this. You can't talk about fake news but present wrong information, that's hypocritical. You can't just make up stuff. Period.

  17. If u are an American citizen and dnt feel some type of way about this….something is truly wrong with u! This don’t make no damn sense! Wow 🤬

  18. i just want to state that aj+ pushed a fake story a year ago on facebook. i shown the real story to them and everybody that was showing it to me. they blocked me from there page.
    aj+ eat a big hearty bowl of dicks. if people really wants to see the real problem with the u.s. its garbage like you shacks of filth making these bogus stories that totally twist the truth and release it when there is ''scary thing happening'' so the u.s. can become divided.

  19. Hezbollah blasting hate speed on its official Twitter account is still active.
    What you call fake news is the manifestation of lies perpetuated by media itself so the anti-establishment believe in every contrarian opinion only because there is firm conviction that media is lying. Bad karma of western society has piled up against it and the day of judgement is fast approaching

  20. How come the Simpsons shows show what is going on in America and the world years before some of these things happen?

  21. If Americans are stupid enough to believe in fake news then go ahead Macedonia and make millions off of it

  22. Google needs to block adsense payments to parasite countries like Russia and Macedonia and fake news outlets like Shitebart, Milo Yanksoffkidsalot etc.

  23. Here is the biggest fake news perpatuated by every western country and the US government and every mainstream media in the US Iraq had nuclear weapons second Syria used chemical weapons. so facebook being only responsible for fake news is ludacris its only a scape goat.

  24. +AJ+ – $100, 0000 a month from Google Adsense? This is highly unlikely given that Google Adsense only pays about $1 for 1000 impressions of an Ad. For someone to get 100k in earnings per month they will have to get at least 1 Billion visits on their website per month.

  25. Reminder: Hillary Clinton did not because of fake news. She lost because she is a horrible human being and our ah-t electoral system only allows for sh-t candidates.

  26. Most news is partly or entirely fake. There is an intense competition for the hearts, minds, and eyeballs of the world's population, and spin or outright lies can help win this competition. Let's not pretend that news outlets are playing a game that they are not trying to win. Everyone is cheating at this game, and it would be naive to think otherwise. Major news outlets are controlled by cabals. These smaller fake news competitors are playing the same game on a smaller scale, and most of them are also controlled by cabals. Al Jazeera is run by one of these cabals, so it is no surprise that they would want to "expose" their smaller competitors.

  27. So it’s unethical for these people to do that. But this journalist finds it OK to hide identity of the troll himself? That doesn’t seem very ethical either. It’s just adding to the problem. The guy is in fear of having the United States finding out who he is. Bingo that’s a great idea

  28. The EX Facebook employee seem to have an ax to grind. He didn’t seem credible. It was like he was looking for his 15 minutes of fame.

  29. Americans are blinded by their division and wanting to prove who's better or right during elections, don't see the distractions of other countries using the perfect tool to do it.

  30. Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (FYROM) is the source of fake news and fake history. It's good that people have realized this.
    Their ethnicity is fake and artificial, made official by Tito, thinking they are related to the ancient Macedonians who were Greek.

  31. I love how this clearly shows that eastern Europeans are profiting and exploiting from American stupidity. As a far leftist i'm against exploitation but to profit from true ignorance and lack of intelligence, I say to you my fellow Maco's, bravo!

  32. in this segment we see that Facebook was in fact, not only maximizing campaign funds from all sides, by telling each side that Facebook could help the different campaign teams win the 2016 election, but in fact on having promised Facebook his campaign would be spending 100 Million Dollars in adds, had Facebook personally assign a Facebook IT professional who Brad Parscale could quickly use as a kind of Facebook user Manual. in other interviews with ex Facebook employees tasked with finding Fraud and manipulation, Facebook higher ups ignored the concerns the teams were raising.

  33. Sounds like a cia type ops. social engineering the world financiers are at it trying to make terrorist like attacks. on information dissemination. to use it in the mainstream news to demonize free speech and as and excuse to silence speech. next they'll try to demonize comments. Proof financiers spend monies to trick us all. they now want us to think we need laws against free speech. when really we need laws to call this terrorism. the wep pages they used in this situtaion may not even be bad but they are tying them in with this huge scam. block incoming internet request from unconfirmed outside sources. simple as a pimple pop. cyber wall with a couple of closely monitored gates. for incoming and outgoing. a segregated network like AOL use to be. hmm.

  34. In addition Trump himself steers audience away from legitimate news sources by labeling them fake, thus increasing the herd of followers of predatory news factories. After all this is the people mass that is likely to get him a second mandate.

  35. Fake news is just a product and YOU are the customer. You either “buy” or don’t!

    Cross check your sources, keep cool until truth surfaces and be responsible about what you put out there! Fake news can only be defeated at the individual level. That’s YOU!

  36. Full documentary on YouTube by PBS' Frontline called "The Facebook Dilemma." It was a two-part investigation so there are parts One and Two on YouTube.

  37. how was hitlery even close? shes a megafalure liek her husabnd!! rememebr 80s deregualtion let to the NET and clinton got there whiel net went beserk!! he fuckied everything with overspending and regualtion including 2008 housing laws fanny freddy!! clinton caused 2008!
