The Liberal Media

Fake News Revue

Facebook really saved me this morning from potentially sharing this “news story” from The Onion. Turns out Facebook’s team of crack fact-checkers couldn’t verify the validity of a claim that a WWE staff member shot an aggressive wrestler after a child had climbed into his cage. First off, I’m relieved it wasn’t true, as it would have been a tragedy for the child and their family, not to mention the irreversible damage the WWE would have incurred. Second, I almost shared this link on my social medias…then what would’ve happened? It would have likely been shared by parents and grandparents and that one uncle, gone viral, and then the president himself would have tweeted about it. We live in scary times.
