A college to teach fake news

Poynters?  They teach you how to make random semi-facts sound newsy, and when you pass the course, you can write fake news and get it past the Facebook censors.  They have all the tricks:  So, for example, if I said this wasa George Soros big brother organization, it would never get past the censors.  But if I say, learns Facebook fact checking, and unchecking, then it gets past.

Mission Statement

The Poynter Institute is a global leader in journalism. It is the world’s leading instructor, innovator, convener and resource for anyone who aspires to engage and inform citizens in 21st Century democracies.

What we do

To that end, we teach those who manage, edit, produce, program, report, write, blog, photograph and design, whether they belong to news organizations or work as independent entrepreneurs. We teach those who teach, as well as students in middle school, high school and college—the journalists of tomorrow. And we teach members of the public, helping them better understand how journalism is produced and how to tell for themselves whether it’s credible.

But, a better idea. Take the Redneck U three ring decoder class, you get this ring decoder, scan it over any pundit post it identifies three things: 
1) The pretend to be fair model 
2) The favorite goodies of the author
3) The secret message the author sent to members of the gang.
This class does not need form X1437, the diversity waiver, anyone can take it.
