But the BBC has kindly included it on their list of juiciest jokes for April.
Of course the Beeb have been banned lots lately from White House press events so that's pretty good credentials.


Russian hackers on demand

Inspired by claims that Kremlin-sponsored hackers tried to rig the US election, Russia's foreign ministry shared "a new answering machine for Russian diplomatic missions abroad" on

So today was official FAKE NEWS Day.

Been busy in the real world so not much time to collect juicy morsels but there are some out there.

Of course there were countless resignations in Washington but no one could possibly fooled by those

In honour of the day, Radio National devoted one of their many repeats to a forum about Trust and truth in the digital news age

Best tasty morsel ever was the link to this online Defence Against the Dark Arts site

So many sites and so little time
