Out of the Mouths of Macedonian Babes

Explaining why it would be harder to make lots of money from promoting Fake News in Germany, a Macedonian teenager explained to the Financial Times:
 “Germans take their politics more seriously.It’s not about entertainment for them.”
And on the ethics of Fake News, here's another quotation from the Financial Times story:
 “If I make €100,000 this year, I’ll pay €10,000 in taxes — that will pay for two of my teachers’ salaries for a whole year,” said one teenager, in an interview given while he skipped history class. “So, I feel like I’m giving something back.”
