Fake News Is Fake

This is Fakey McFakerson reporting…back to you in the studio, Chris – I mean, Erin…is that Erin? I don’t know.

I’m just out here in the parking lot pretending to be on a satellite feed while standing in front of some police tape we tied to a couple tripods, so I really have no idea what’s going on.

But don’t I look serious and knowledgeable?

  1. I think the biggest Fake News EVAH is Pvt. Pleather claiming to be a journalist.


  2. I knew radio reporters who would record their stories in the stairwell of the station complete with the phrase "...from the XYZ Courthouse, I'm ____." They were not smart enough to write the story where they were and "perform" it from the actual location.

    TV news is worse of course. The visuals are very important -- like standing in the hallway of the Pentagon. The anchor asks "What's the mood there now?" Just once I want to hear a reporter say "Well, Tim. The cleaning lady is pissed she can't mop this section of the floor until this live hit is finished..."

  3. My favorite fake news bit remains this one from the Today Show. Leave it to NBC.
