Everybody beats up Facebook over fake news, but Siri can help Safari surface plenty of it too
At the time of this writing, in the late afternoon on Tuesday, if I swipe to the right on my iPhone 7 Plus and type "Obama Muslim" into the search bar at the top, I'm shown a link right at the top for a YouTube video that breathlessly proclaims "Obama Admits He Is A Muslim."
Type "Obama lizard" into the search bar instead, and the Siri Suggested Websites feature helpfully surfaces a Quora thread speculating about whether the 44th president of the United States is indeed a lizard. Right below that is a link to a poorly cobbled together website that seems to make the same case. Type "Hillary cover up" into the search bar, and ... you get the idea. The fun continues.
