The Huffington Post Featured Fake News from Fake Writers

The Huffington Post Featured Fake News from Fake Writers

BarbWire.com  |  

As if fake news weren’t bad enough, now we’ve got to deal with fake news written by fake people.

The Huffington Post has had to remove an April 13 post on its blog by–purportedly–an “activist and feminist” who is working for her master’s degree in philosophy, surely one of the great thinkers of our time, advocating that white men be formally stripped of their right to vote because it’s all their fault that Donald Trump got to be president instead of Hillary Clinton, and also Brexit is their fault, too

Huffington Post SA has removed the blog “Could It Be Time To Deny White Men The Franchise?” published on our Voices section on April 13, 2017.

We have done this because the blog submission from an individual who called herself Shelley Garland, who claimed to be an MA student at UCT, cannot be traced and appears not to exist.

We have immediately bolstered and strengthened our blogging procedures that, until now, have operated on the basis of open communication and good faith. From now on, bloggers will have to verify themselves.

… and not letting them vote anymore, see, that would make it way easier for progressives to win elections… How do you spell the sound a raspberry makes?

Anyhow, HuffPo had to delete the post because its author “appears not to exist.” Dontcha hate it when that happens?

If a fictional person self-identifies as real, does that mean he, she, it, whatevuh, is real? Isn’t this yet another kind of discrimination–real-ism?

BarbWire Books is pleased to announce
