Questionable News Sources

In the olden days of the Internet, it was fun to trip people up by linking to The Onion stories and acting as though they were real. Now, people are too Internet saavy to fall for this trick. Well, one would hope so, but it is not to be. Literally Unbelievable is a new Tumblr blog filled with screenshots of Facebook users taking articles from The Onion seriously.

somebody is going to inevitably point out that 75% of the people chronicled on this website are out of touch conservatives...

i'm surprised nobody has thought of using internet trolling to try and neutralize the republican base

all you would have to do is create a fake website that pretends to be affiliated with the GOP and then dispense ridiculous misinformation. (claim it's satire and the law can't touch you)

"voting canceled due to socialist-reptilian-terrorism plot"

etc. etc.
