Accusations blaming others for our own mistakes are one of the most damaging and serious forms of fake news. If they happen to be a distraction, then the real problem, which might be just simple unbridled predatory capitalism, in the country that leads the world in this, is being ignored, and could go on to destroy everything, and everyone. Of course there would have been some meddling, which might have had some small effect, but what mechanisms allowed this to happen? And who can blame anyone in a predatory world for taking advantage of it? Communications and media infrastructure, itself designed only to yield profit is easily compromised.
