The last political season has shown us that there is an abundance of bipartisan fake news, both for and against all parties. After noticing plenty of fake and misleading posts making it to the front page the people of Voat are sick of it. We are hear to catalog and track all of these fake posts and articles and call them out for the disinformation they are.
