How do you stop these perpetual misinformation fear mongering stories? There is no validity to this — it first went viral last year, and was debunked. The over-emphasis of crime in this country is creating immense cultural damage. America lost free-range children. What's next?

We're all the same — and the lack of GenZ fake news literacy demonstrated in that thread has me horrified. We're going to live with this for a very long time.  https://www.buzzfeednews.com/article/pranavdixit/whatsapp-destroyed-village-lynchings-rainpada-india 

There are more GenZ that can identify which influencer apology video is full of shit, like YouTube rain men, than there are able to debunk fakes news like this. And GenZ will likely lead the pack in these information wars.

May we hope the bloomers and zoomers win — and not those who created them.  https://melmagazine.com/en-us/story/4chan-doomer-gloomer-memes-music-playlists
