Title: news? Fake news? Or just garbage?
Post by Burstner55 on Aug 8th, 2020, 4:31pm

BBC Online is getting ever more hilarious. Last week a big feature on how to recognise fake news. This week?  This: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-53607943#  Stand by to die any minute, folks. Or weep for the death of responsible news gathering and reportage. The subject of the article admits she is not a scientist but is helping promote theories that, even in the article, are rejected by people who ARE scientists.  It is all based on the fantasy that not only the end of the world is nigh but.....the end of the universe!   Donít pay your TV licence just yet. A post dated cheque could save you some cash! ;D
