Report: Millennials Most Likely to Believe Fake News

According to a recently published study by the Dunning-Kruger Institute for Media Research, young people under the age of 30 are the most likely to fall victim to fake news stories.They say this is in part due to the fact that young people are far less wise than the older generations and do not know how to use google as people from the boomer generation do. Lead researcher Dr. Bruce Sackrider had this to say:

“Millennials have proven time and time again that they will believe anything that they see online as long as it fits their political agenda. Boomers are 90% more likely to check sources before believing an article, sharing it, and strutting around like they owned their opposition as young people do. They are just naive and gullible and don’t have that hard knocks education yet. Even this very story could be fake news, and a millennial would just eat it up as fact.”

The younger generations will believe CNN, but will ignore the truth about Hillary

It is clear that the younger generations believe everything the news tells them to, this is why they don’t believe Hillary Clinton has committed all of the various atrocities she is accused of. We need to raise awareness about this serious issue before more politicians get away with treason and quid pro quo. The Dunning-Kruger Institute for Media Research says that we can help solve the issue of fake news by calling out the gullible when you see them sharing fake stories such as this one. Only then will politicians have to make any attempt to be truthful with the people of this country.

  1. THAT IS LIBERALS ALL OVER, WE HAVE AGE AND EXPERIENCE TO KNOW IF SOMETHING IS A LIE, AND YOU CAN GO TO FOX OR YOUR PASTOR IF YOU ARE NOT CERTAIN. THEY TELL THE TRUTH ABOUT DEMS AND YOU KNOW IT ALL READY ANY WAY.

    • Your really stupid this site is fake news. The reason he made this article is for people like you that believe anything. Just search up trusted sources like usa today, buzz feed, and mediasbiasfactcheck.
      and include bustatroll fake news.

    • Even this very story could be fake news, and a millennial would just eat it up as fact.” quote the article that you just read. This is indication that this website is fake news the founder even ADMITTED IT! The reason why its satire is because people like you don’t have to have the age and experience to know if something is a lie that doesn’t make you know if something is right or wrong. I don’t think you realize that boomers are older and are more prone to physical and mental diseases. At school we are taught not to trust sites like these. Boomers never grew up with the internet and all these sites, scams, and lies. YOUR Age doesn’t decide what you know and/or your intelligence! But obviously in this case everyone that has graduated high school must be smarter than you.
