So scream the headlines.
The only problem is none of those purported news stories, re-blogged onto countless other sites, is true.
They are all spoofs written by a Bob Flanagan, no doubt a fake name, for the fake news site World News Daily Report.
Just go to WorldNewsDailyReport.com and look at the “Breaking News” crawling banner at the top:
- FDA approves tranquilizing darts for children!
- Paraguay: Woman claims to be daughter of Adolf Hitler!
- Tornado carries mobile home 130 miles, family inside unharmed!
Still think the stories are authentic? Just go to Urban Legends, which has World News Daily Report in its list of fake news sites.
Don’t be a rube by falling for World News Daily Report‘s fakery, no matter how tempting the headline.
