Seems fake news is only getting faker, even as members of the media and politicians continue to call it out. For instance a story about Megyn Kelly “calling it quits” live on the air which was completely false was making the rounds earlier this week.
Brit Hume took them down.
This is fake news, from a website hawking some skin care product. Utterly false: https://t.co/QVP8HJttdf

That works right? *we like it*
You have to wonder how many people though read that and thought it was true, especially if they don’t watch Fox News. And what damage that could do to Kelly and the station.
@brithume So compared to CNN, this website makes CNN look almost TRUTHFUL?

Many Americans are sick and tired of fake news as well, the problem is there is SO MUCH of it we don’t know what’s real and what’s not sometimes.
Except Twitchy, we definitely keep it real.
