Triond, a once very popular writing site, which paid well, had given birth to viril spoofs.
The first concerned the suicide of a popular actor who surely wasn’t dead.
The second was based on the racism of Americans.
The Whitehouse Insider by Ulsterman was such a hit it was quoted in previously reliable news sources. This was fantastic and caused great excitement.
Never before had a total fabrication from Triond of all places, gained such ‘credibility’ that it would be quoted and treated as true by those who should know better.
