People That Write Fake Weather News Stories Are Complete Douche Nuggets

October 26th, 2017

CHICAGO, IL – After reports surfaced this week of a huge snow storm hitting the Illinois Valley, some people were left wondering what kind of turd basket would create a fake story and post it online. We happen to agree.

There is a fine line in journalism between funny and serious and when news outlets report on the weather in a blatantly false and clearly satirical way they are being tools.

The Cob for one would never report these type of stories as we hold ourselves to a higher standard of integrity.

So we ask that those in the community that think it is funny or sneaky to report such stories to stop. It is childish and offensive to those seeking real news and not knowing what is real or fake.

The internet used to be a place where you could go and read the truths of the world, Wikipedia, Huffpo, FoxNews, and Tinder were the beacons of unbiased truth and news, look how far we’ve fallen.
