The Chris Plante Show

Instagram censored Taylor Swift meme: WMAL's The Chris Plante Show posted a meme that superimposed a flag that read "Trump Won" and "Democrats Cheated" on top of a photo of Taylor Swift at a Kansas City Chiefs game, making it appear as though she was holding the flag. Instagram placed a fact check interstitial over the obviously fake image that read: "Altered photo/video. Independent fact-checkers say this photo could mislead people." According to Facebook, Instagram's sister-company, users fail to click through such interstitials 95% of the time.
