That's a good start!!

Now the sad thing is, they would believe that the articles are the truth, but the disclaimer that states it's satire, it apparently NOT? :crylaugh:

The only thing to do with that profound level of wilful ignorance is remove them from your social circles so the stupid doesn't leak into you.

Need to add political or celeb gossip to that list. Try reading non-political news that isn't about celeb gossip - nothing comes up.

I'd like to see the following sites added to the list:

gossipmillsa.com

nationalnewsbulletin.com

Both are promoting a fake story about Ramaphosa talking about land ownership, which never took place.

http://gossipmillsa.com/entertain-land-issue-black-owned-farms-productive-cyril-ramaphosa/

http://nationalnewsbulletin.com/2017/05/06/entertain-land-issue-black-owned-farms-productive-cyril-ramaphosa/
Yeah, I saw that, and a FB friend shared it. So I told him it's fake, and he deleted the comment. :crylaugh: Goodbye!
