Excerpt From: WWNC. Written By: Pete Kaliner.
The folks at the McClatchy-owned News & Observer are very mad at the leader of the North Carolina State Senate.
Over the past few weeks Senator Phil Berger has been posting stories from the N&O onto his Facebook page.Notice: The WPP_Query class has been deprecated since 5.0.0. Please use \WordPressPopularPosts\Query instead. in /www/wp-content/plugins/wordpress-popular-posts/src/deprecated.php on line 43
And when he does, he alters the headlines.
Cue the screams of “Fake News!!!”
This is the story that the N&O has been telling.
Well, actually, it’s ONE of the stories that the N&O is telling.
The OTHER story is that it wasn’t Sen. Berger at all. But, rather, one of his staffers. Who quit doing so after they were admonished by Facebook that this violates the Terms of Service.
By the way… both of these stories the N&O is telling are in the same published report.
