i was talking to someone today who casually mentioned that Harry Reid and slept with Mitch McConnell's wife and that this was the source of Senatorial disputes for years. He told me he had read this on the internet and that I should google it. I had never heard this and so, I googled "Reid McConnell affair" and there were many hits. I began to read the first article and was amazed that this article was reiterating everything that I had heard. I then looked to see what the source of this story was and it turned out it was an old story from The Onion.

Clearly meant as a joke, this particular story is now being cited as source material by at least one reader who was not observant or who had no idea what the Onion is. I admit to being taken in for a bit until I questioned the source.

So, while it is clear that this was misinterpreted, how much other material written as satire is being ingested and regurgitated by unknowing and unaware victims. Anyone have other examples.

Misinformation from the internet is not exactly a news flash but does anyone else have similar experience with it? And no need to point to escort reviews

I love the internet. One actually can find helpful information on it. Then again, one can find almost anything on the internet. You name the conspiracy theory, some crackpot has probably already posted it.

 

Helpful hint: If you want medical information, make sure you only look at legitimate websites (as well as talking with your doctor and pharmacist, naturally). Turns out that no matter what medication you might be prescribed, someone on the internet will claim that that medication is what completely ruined his life.

This reminded me of this:

And of course there is this: It should be noted that he is vehemently defending his reputation. For the good doctor, there is millions at stake not to mention his reputation.

Are you telling me that sniffing cider vinegar won't help my asthma?
