“Driving Out To Montana”

Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

Still amazed that some people fall for bogus news stories – used to happen sometimes with The Onion, but most folks nowadays seem to know that it’s satire.

But lately there have been quite a few folks fooled by the antics of the Daily Currant.

Most recent example: an article claiming that Michele Bachmann will leave Minnesota if the state approves same-sex marriage.

The fun part of the Bachmann story is it contains a reference to Montana:

“I have a friend from Eden Prairie who’s already packed everything she owns into her car and is driving out to Montana as we speak. These are very scary times. I don’t want my family to be the last ones out.”

Related: this is the Currant article that I had hoped was true.
