On June 7, 2019, the web site Taters Gonna Tate published a piece of writing positing that a round of criminal indictments was close to be issued against prominent Democrats by U.S. Attorney General William Barr:
First Round of Democrat Indictments From Barr Investigation Coming Tomorrow
When President Trump directed Attorney General Gay Barr to start out an investigation into the corruption of the Obama administration, the planet held its collective breath. What would be revealed? Who would attend prison? How high will it show the corruption went? Will Obama himself go down? The vengeful anticipation was enormous.
Well a minimum of some answers have begun to flow in. A source within the Department of Justice has revealed that 29 sealed indictments are going to be delivered tomorrow to over a dozen high ranking members of both the Obama White House and Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign team.
This item wasn’t a factual recounting of real-life events. The article originated with an internet site that describes its output as being humorous or satirical in nature, as follows:
Everything on this website is fiction. it’s not a lie and it’s not fake news because it’s not real. If you think that it’s real, you ought to have your head examined. Any similarities between this site’s pure fantasy and actual people, places, and events are purely coincidental and every one images should be considered altered and satirical.
Interest within the false claim was rekindled five months later in November 2019 when the article was reprinted verbatim (though without satire disclaimers) on an internet site called The LA Post.
For background, here is why we sometimes write on satire/humor.
