  1. Not to be a party pooper, try not to add any alt-right or left political talk in this show. Thank you.

    Trump won, your country going down the drain…if any more talk about these political stuff…your show will also go down the drain.

    Keep up the good work Tom Merritt!!

    1. Hey Simon,

      As you probably know we steer clear of politics when it doesn’t relate tot he tech topic. I think Justin had a fair point that if we’re going to talk about Facebook’s policy we have to talk about the reason they think there needs to be a policy which means bringing up what got a lot of people to notice fake news. I hope we walked the line of not talking ABOUT politics but acknowledging where politics caused the issue. IN any case thanks for the nudge.
