    Why has punditry overtaken news, with so many media outlets pushing partisan agendas instead of information?

    After last year’s election, Facebook came in for a drubbing for its role in propagating misinformation — or “fake news,” as we called it back then, before the term became a catchall designation for any news you don’t like. The criticism was well placed: Facebook is the world’s most popular social network, and millions of people look to it daily for news.

    In May 2016, a Facebook page called Heart of Texas urged its nearly 254,000 followers to rise up against what it considered to be an urgent cultural menace. A mosque in Houston had opened up a new library, and Heart of Texas planned to protest. “Stop Islamization of Texas,” it warned. By now you might be able to guess the punch line here. Heart of Texas wasn’t a real group, as Business Insider later reported.

    Last week, New York magazine published a riveting and frightening look at the future of the planet we call home.
