The phrase "Fake News" has been on my mind a lot lately. I can't be the only one. Then I wondered if anyone had written a Fake News skip. So googled it and discovered that apparently somebody had! And then they had immediately deleted it, citing lackage of sleep the night before as the excuse for what they now realized was a terrible mistake.
Naturally, I immediately called dibs.
