Back in the old days, when people got their news mainly from papers, magazines, radio and television, it was generally easy to figure out when someone was pulling your leg. Pretty much anything in the National Enquirer was suspect, for example. That tabloid often featured stories with outrageous headlines, such as, "Woman Gives Birth to Alien." We may laugh at such titles, but what's not so funny is that in the last decade or two, with the growth of the Internet and social media, fake news stories and entire fake news sites have proliferated.
David Cooper, 42, was a blue collar worker just like you.
Until the day his Sony DVD player tried to kill him.
"It happened in a blink of an eye" said Cooper, "I was talking to my wife about Hiroshima then BANG! the DVD player just exploded." It was like it knew what we were saying."
Mr Cooper and his wife have not slept soundly since the event and have contacted lawyers to find closure.
"We just want this dark episode of our life to end!" said David's wife Martha.
Experts determined the source of the fault was a beverage spill.
