Fake news - people like to share information that makes them feel good,

Since the US election presidential race, fact checking websites report what seems like an increase in anti-Trump, 'liberal fake news'
Many people on the left right now are feeling overwhelmed and fearful and unsure of what's going to happen next. While they're scrolling through their information feeds at speed on small mobile phones their critical functions are not kicking in, and they're seeing information that makes them feel immediately connected with other people who think similarly to them. And without doing the usual checks that they would do, they're sharing and very quickly passing on similarly false and problematic content that we were seeing before the election.
How do you know that is true 
Someone said it was 
Do you ever feel you might be suffering from confirmation bias?
I mean all you are doing is going round confirming what others have said why don't you try sifting fact from runour
