Fakers who exploit confirmation bias for page views

We have some new code that tries to prevent fake news sites from being promoted at LGF. If someone posts a link to a fake news site (like abcnews​.com​.co) in a comment, when you click on it you’ll see a warning message that it’s a fake news site. You can still choose to go there if you want, but at least you’ll know what you’re getting into.

And if someone opens the LGF Pages bookmarklet from a fake news site, they’ll see a warning that those sites can’t be posted in LGF Pages and the window will come up with all the fields blanked out.

Here’s the list of fake news sites we’re checking links against; let me know in a comment if I missed any.
