Fake News booms as Facebook ban actual news
MELBOURNE, VIC – The fake news industry has exploded after Facebook took the dramatic move today of banning all sharing of genuine news from within Australia.
The change comes after the Australian parliament passed landmark media laws that required Google and Facebook to pay news publishers for displaying their content.
The CEO of Damascus Dropbear, Theodore Hugglesworth, explained however that the news ban still allows their unique fake news for the faithful contributions to be shared:
“Ever since this happened we have seen our stock skyrocket as we are now the only players left in the news game.”
“Just think of it as our Stephen Bradbury moment.”
“Fake News is now the new Bitcoin of news currency – obviously without the constant crashing.”
“What Facebook and the News companies intended for evil – God intended for his glorious good.”
When interviewing himself however, Hugglesworth did not avoid asking the hard questions about whether they were worried that their content might be banned as well.
“From the start we have been faced with the possibility of being blacklisted by Big Tech – but with Parler back up, Instagram and Twitter, as well as our email signup (*cough), I’m sure the Lord will provide a way through.”
“For the message of Fake News is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.”
It was at that point Hugglesworth stood up, smashed his own microphone, and refused to answer any more questions.
