Fake News Still Influences
Facebook
Despite Mark Zucker

berg’s attempts to limit
fake news on Facebook,
my timeline continues
to offer up news stories
that are more false than
true. Here’s an example
of what I documented on
my timeline in the last 24
hours:
-THIEVES TRY TO
SIPHON GAS FROM
AN RV, BUT INSTEAD
SUCK OUT SEWAGE-
Icky, how gross would
this be? Supposedly this
happened in a foreign
country. Maybe it’s true,
but when its origins come
from a site called World
News, I believe it’s there
to get a click through
more than truth.
-U.S. Rep. ATE

SHA NUBBINS JUST
PUSHED THROUGH A
BILL THAT BANNED
ANYONE OVER 60
FROM VOTING- I
would be experiencing
many a sleepless night
if I thought this was at
all possible, but lo and
behold, there is no such
bill and no such represen-
tative named Nubbins.
-BILL CLINTON
BUSTED FOR READ

ING CHILD RAPE
BOOK ON PLANE-
Omg, here we go with the
Clinton bashing, again.
Trump ranks highest on
my timeline as the subject
of more fake new than
anyone, but the Clintons
manage to be runners-up.
Bill might have commit

ted several immoral acts, but child rape is not one
of them.
-MAN ARRESTED
AFTER DEFECATING
ON WALMART FLOOR-
I suppose in our crazy,
mixed-up world, this
could actually be true, but
again the website posting
this is one of those that
has earned an untrust-
worthy rating, so I think
as gross as it may be, it is
false.
-THIS RESTAURANT
EMPLOYS WAITERS
WITH DEMENTIA- Sup

posedly, this unknown
restaurant seeks to hire a
wait staff that has de-
mentia, so that customers
need not order- they get
whatever the waiter puts
in front of them. I don’t
know if we are to be

lieve restaurant are good
Samaritans or maybe have
a touch of dementia them-
selves, but most likely this
is another example of fake
news.
-MUSLIM MIGRANT
WORKER BEHEADS
1-YEAR-OLD- Sick, sick
and more sick. This is a
new low, even for fake
news. This simply never
happened.
-SPOILED KID GETS
TOSSED OFF BOAT- If
you’re like me, there are
a couple of times I was
a passenger on a cruise,
when a bratty kid was so
annoying, that my evil
twin would consider such
a dirty deed. But neither
my evil twin or anyone
else actually tossed a kid
overboard.
-STUDENTS IN
DETROIT ARE SUEING
THE STATE BECAUSE
THEY WEREN’T
TAUGHT TO READ-
Ha ha, gotcha here. This
is actually true. Seven
students, spurred on by a
California pro-bono group
of lawyers, has filed suit.
Actually last week, a dis

trict judge dismissed the
case, but now it is being
appealed to a higher court.
-39 PERCENT OF
CALIFORNIA STU

DENTS ARE ILLE

GAL- Although some
conservatives might think
this plausible the actual
number is far less- 3%.
-STUDY FINDS
FIRST BORN SMARTER
THAN SIBLINGS- I just
had to throw this in being
older than my 3 sisters
and 1 brother. Another
study said the oldest child
is also the best looking.
Alas, there have been
numerous studies to
determine whether the
oldest, youngest or middle
siblings are the smartest,
without any conclusive
evidence that intelligence
has a preference. I sadly
must say this fake news.
