From The Guardian: Fake news sharing in US is a rightwing thing, says study.

Low-quality, extremist, sensationalist and conspiratorial news published in the US was overwhelmingly consumed and shared by rightwing social network users, according to a new study from the University of Oxford.

and the kicker:

One thing the study did not find is evidence of substantial amounts of Russian news sources being shared. “The political conversations on social media exclude a Russian audience group,” the researchers concluded.

If this study were to shared in these right wing social network groups, it would be dismissed as fake news, of course.
