I found it interesting that when I went to read Zuckerberg’s post about misinformation, there were two ads on the side that are super fake.

Despite appearances, the first one doesn’t point to espn.com. It goes to espn.com-magazine.online and attempts to sell a muscle-building supplement using ESPN branding and a fake news story.

The CNN-branded ad goes to less work. It just takes you to a site called Fine the Racers with an exclusive offer for a 12-week program to strengthen your toes (?).
