    Slum Lords and White Saviors

    This week, in our 'Fake New Family Tree' series we are focusing in on two white hot fake news overachievers - Sean Hannity and Laura Ingraham. Both contribute to the spread of misinformation from the most watched fake news platform, Fox News. The High Priest and Priestess of Hate make quite the iconic duo as they spin and weave a narrative of lies on a nightly basis to their misled fans.

    Call Your Dad; the Government is a Cult!

    This week we explore the broken branches of this fake news family tree- our current president and his Igor...I mean his VP. Trump and Pence may have literally nothing in common, but boy, are they willing to do anything to hang on to their current power. Lying is apparently perfectly fine, as long as you have God in your corner!

    Fake News Family Tree, Part One

    Fake News Family Tree, Part One

    This episode Kelly and Beth take on a new series, where we look at fake news makers as opposed to the fake news itself. We think it's important to know who runs the behind the scenes for the fake news industry we see today. We begin by looking at some of the keystone components of fake news media - the John Birch Society and the Koch Brothers.

Each episode is my new favorite

I've learned something every episode about fake news. Beth and Elizabeth do a good balance of informing, while keeping it fun and interesting. And now, whenever I make sandwiches - I think Spread jam, not lies. The good thing is I also think that before I hit share on articles now too. Keep up the good work Beth and Elizabeth!
