    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?

    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.

    But fake news = selling more news... getting more eyeballs to the page... making money actually...


    nah, I'm totally off news of any kind now, whether genuwyne, satirical or fake.
    A Sunday Law is coming soon.

    Government notices will henceforth no longer be published in the Gazette, but in the Junk Mail.
