Donald Trump was elected president of the United States on Nov. 8th, 2016. This was earth-shattering news to half the country. For former Nike executive Erik Hagerman, it was the straw that broke the camel’s back. Not liking the direction the country was going, he turned his back on the news and hasn’t looked back since. He started out thinking he was just taking a temporary break from the news as a way to preserve his sanity, but it quickly became a lifestyle choice.
“Terrorists Have Infiltrated the US Government!” “Pope Francis Shocks World, Endorses Donald Trump for President …” “Hillary Sold Passport Printing Machines to ISIS…” Fake news stories like these were shared millions of times on Facebook during the 2016 US election.
