Mash Joins Battle Against ‘Fake News’

Popular British news source the Daily Mash is to mount a crusade against the deluge of fake news sites that are plaguing social media, it has emerged. “In Britain in the last year, we saw the public assailed with a sustained propaganda campaign trumpeting the supposed benefits of remaining in the European Union” explained Senior Editor Steven Mallie, “while on the other side of the pond, a tidal wave of disinformation almost led to Hillary Clinton becoming President. Even Australia seems to have entered into an age of post-strewth politics. This shit has to stop, and we’re going to do everything in our power to ensure that our readers will have access only to the undiluted truth when they visit our site.”

Professor Henry Brubaker of the Institute for Studies agrees. “There’s no excuse for continuing to make up bollocks and attribute it to real people” he observed when contacted by this blog, “I’ve just about had it with that nonsense.”
