Great story from The Daily Beast IDing the guy behind the viral Pelosi "drunk" video -- a publisher of hyperpartisan Facebook pages followed by tens of thousands of people who posted it to make money. thedailybeast.com/we-found-shawn…
I could see the argument to report out the story but conceal the person's identity if, say, the video had been made to share with friends and things got out of hand. This is not that.
Fabrications moving up the chain from low-level internet and social media publishers to more prominent political people and media outlets were a big deal in 2016, and the problem isn't going away.
