FACEBOOK TRENDING STORY ON TRUMP ACCUSER IS LATEST IN A RASH OF SUSPECT REPORTS
A highly suspect story about Gloria Allred and Donald Trump was trending on Facebook on Friday — the latest example of the social network's struggle to weed out fake and misleading subject matter. On Friday morning Facebook users noticed that Allred's name was showing up in the "trending" box on the Facebook home page. The headline at the top of the topic page said "BREAKING: Ex-Apprentice Summer Zervos Paid $500,000 By Gloria Allred to Accuse Trump, Deal Went To Others Too." Zervos is one of Allred's clients who have accused Trump of sexual misconduct. So the claim was shocking.
