The Internet is also the only place where controversial facts can reach a large audience, unlike the controlled mainstream media and biased academia. In some cases, it is the only place to find certain facts (if you disregard rare controversial books). The idea that mainstream views are always factual and unpopular views are always biased is a silly fallacy and this is perfectly illustrated by the fact that once 99% of all Europeans were certain the earth was flat and laughed at the idea of a round earth.

But I will agree with you on this : there's a lot of nonsense to be found on the Internet. That's one of the reasons I try to use well-sourced books instead of Internet sources as references whenever I can.

Some of them may have turned into "sceptics" and just continued lying from a different point of view
