Ok, folks, here is an example of REAL fake news...

The headline reads:

Rep GOP Steven Smith of Georgia

and the post is:

Blames the media, for calling the klan terrorists and not the victims who were apparently
terrorists also.

It was not posted using the sarcasm tag nor did it provide a link to the source. Luckily, someone pointed out that it is from a parody site before a South bashing ensued.

Please don't be offended when a poster asks you for a source. There's no reason for fake news on DU.
