April jokes in online media

It’s the first of April. Please, just don’t open the classic news sites or else you’ll be a part of the joke. They are flooded with fake news today.

According to thestar.com, it’s a media tradition of April Fool’s Day.

A newspaper in the Netherlands had told its readers one April 1 that on that day it had started to use a new ink that smelled like tulips. Not surprisingly, some noses were out of joint by that prank.

In this digital era when information spreads around in seconds and lives on forever online, serious news organizations should not play around with far-fetched fake news just for laughs.

Media is a credible business. Even in the “fake news” era. Days like these makes me want to avoid the news.
