Two revelations:

No one tries to verify stories in a support subreddit

Cosmo, The Daily Mail, The Herald Sun, and Uproxx aren't credible journalistic sources.

Crazy stuff.

Exactly. I thought it was really strange that OP was trying to hunt out improper journalism, but that sub is filled with articles and posts about the fake news. The real problem is the consumers who don't know which sources are credible. In my mind, by acting like the places that picked it up were credible, OP just proved she was part of the problem.

If people don't know by now that The Daily Mail is garbage is there really any hope for them ?
