Just because you see something first doesn't mean A) that it's accurate or B) that it's worth writing about. In the age of social media hoaxes and lightspeed satire, it pays to slow down.
So today, this happened: Bloomberg News fell for a fake news story originally posted at one of those awful sites that plays on confirmation bias to circulate seemingly genuine stories and generate clicks for them: RETRACTED: Nancy Reagan Gives Her Endorsement to … Hillary Clinton? - Bloomberg Politics.
There’s now a notice at the top of the article:
This story has been retracted. We fell for a hoax. Apologies.
And of course the offenders are once again the jokers at "National Report".
