Here is the skinny on this type of fake news story featuring the headline, “blockbuster celebrity moving to your town soon”.  We have been bamboozled. We are not alone.  Consider how popular a headline in any small to mid-sized media market is with the headline, “Robert Downey has decided to move to our town”? Imagine something you read online turns out to be “not true”? Eyes opened, jaded yet? This is a very good example of a legit “Fake News Story” Now consider how harmless this content is compared to what some political leaders (see the commander and chief) try to tell you is not legitimate news or “fake” news, like man-made climate change?  Just think of the poor folk of Missouri city, who like us, got their hopes up that Robert Downey Jr. was coming to their town. Thanks to the crackpot team of fact-checkers at Durham Cool we have exposed this “trick on residents” of our two fair cities. Take a look at this second story from a similar source KPN7. Likely KPUR7 and KPN7 share the same parent. Same stock photo, same boilerplate language. Simply change the name of the city and you have the exact same story.
