Fake News Story Claiming Tucker Carlson Died Goes Viral (Video)
Over the weekend, a "fake news" story was created which claimed Fox News host Tucker Carlson had been killed in a car crash. The story went viral and was not only shared more than 16,000 times on Facebook, but also remained a top search on Google, long after the story was confirmed a hoax. It also enabled the hoax to generate a follow-up story aimed to create a stir with the right, claiming the fatal crash could have even been a planned assassination tied with Clinton and Comey.
In the following video, Right Wing News looks at the hypocricy of social media giants and their promise to put the axe to fake news (although their filters apparently allow the left to continue their spread of nonsense).
