Interesting take on hoaxes and fakery. I always enjoyed this picture; it’s clearly disinformation to mock those that think 9/11’s planes were fake.

It makes you wonder if we are also entering a post-truth era for news, where it does not actually matter if the story is true as long as it entertains.

    interesting timing for a story like this this. it reminds me of the salinger sydrome stuff from the twa 800 event.
