Natural News Epic Fail

Posted in Skepdude by Skepdude on August 13, 2009

Natural News posted a completely made up, 100% wrong, lie of an article and it’s “editors” didn’t catch shit. Why am I not surprised? Check this out for lulz:

NaturalNews deeply regrets this unintentional error, and we are brainstorming new ways to put in place tighter fact-checking oversight so that the same mistake does not happen again in the future. We thank all those who have brought this important matter to our attention, and we pledge to increase our efforts to reject stories that contain factual inaccuracies.

For the record, what was factually incorrect about the story (which we confirmed by phone with a clerk of United States District Court of Trenton, New Jersey) is that no such injunction has been filed. Thus, the entire premise of the story was factually incorrect.

Hey I have an idea, how about hiring real journalists and NOT MAKING SHIT UP! I wonder why they picked this specific article to remove? They have a plethora to choose from!
