A lot of you are too young to remember this–the exploding Ford Pinto scandal of the 1970s. Fake nooze with a capital F.
The Ford Pinto was supposedly a death-trap: the least little bump, and it would burst into the flames. So said the noozies, and they had the video to prove it.
Eventually it came out that they were faking–planting bombs in the car, drilling holes in the fuel and brake lines, and other little tricks that they never learned in journalism school. To this day I wonder why the whole mob of them weren’t packed off to jail.
