Well, this is something that I need to end up addressing in class with my digital literacy students. Fortunately I have time alloted to handle news items like this. I certainly cannot anticipate things like this popping up.
RumorGuard deals with it in their post in the matter. They weren’t the only ones to deal with it, though. Quoting @NewsLitProject@flipboard.com: https://flipboard.com/@newslitproject/examples-misinformation-hoaxes-conspiracy-theories-92vm26o7z/-/a-J7DcDE4aS72GO-qRSBWJbg%3Aa%3A3001767853-%2F0 #retoot
Yes, the Associated Press dealt with this story as well.
By the end of 2024 we’ll be seeing a monster raving loony complex of insane conspiracy theories in place of what was once a political party. By any indication seen so far Donald Trump will not be thrown off the ballot. Reality is going to be at stake all year, I think.
