How Quickly Plans Change

This post was changed from it's original format pretty quickly because I got trolled, along with many, many other people. See what happened is I heard a pretty cool piece of news but it turned out to be from a fake news site I'd never heard of before. I think we've all been there.

At least I'm not trolled by The Onion aymore
So instead I've just had to write something completely different that seems to be about how easily people can be fooled by fake news sites rather than the fake news those sites were reporting. At least I double checked things before I published the post and proved myself to be a complete fool.
A picture from the original post I wanted to keep in
Remember to always check where your news is coming from and check their sources as well as your own. Fake news sites can be pretty fun though and always good for a laugh for the people who know it's fake spreading the story. That particular story was shared over half a million times. That's a whole lot of butthurt.

Let's be honest; Have you ever been taken in by a fake news site?

  1. I have friends who have cited news stores from The Onion, completely unaware that it's satire. I usually don't correct them because I think it's hilarious.

  2. I'm a deeply suspicious person. That's why I only read well-established, long running news sites.

  5. If you're talking about the Cook coming out of the (sorry) iCloset, then I'm pretty sure that's been confirmed for actual legit news?
