The problem is how to get the average reader of Tennessee Star to do a fact check on their "local newspaper".

I think we need to pressure tech companies into taking responsibility. YouTube is experimenting with fact checking in India these days. Facebook and Google Search need to do the same. Maybe even web browsers should show warnings when visiting known misinformation sites. Tech companies got us into this mess, they should be held responsible and help us out of it.
