You Can’t Make This Up About Fake News

The story of how the FBI investigated a journalist who made a joke about fake news:

One Twitter user warned that she had reported me to the FBI and to Project Veritas — a right-wing organization led by James O’Keefe that stages elaborate stings of reporters, liberals and others; heavily edits its gotcha videos; and then tries to get those people fired.

Project Veritas did not contact me.

But the FBI decided a journalist’s joke was worth its time.

I seriously wish I was making this up.
