Fake Fake News From Throughout History

Fake news is a travesty. I know, I know, it’s been going on ever since the dawn of time (literally, remember when Thomas Jefferson started a rumor that John Adams was a hermaphrodite?) But I’m kinda thankful that the fake news of the past more or less stayed sort of sane before now… because I thought about it extensively, and have talked about it with peers, and I think that if the fake news of today had been around in the past, it would have looked a little something like this.
