 One nice thing about _media_ that take their role as new sources
seriously, is that the shows that aren't intended to be reliable sources of
news don't pretend to be reliable sources of news. Facebook doesn't have
that property. There are a lot of posts there claiming to have reliable
information, without fact-checking or context.
