Fake but accurate

Does anyone else remember the 2004 election when Dan Rather was busted for using fraudulent documents as the basis for a major story, and how he defended himself by claiming the documents were "fake but accurate?" We all had a good laugh at his expense and he ultimately lost his job.

With the UVA rape story turning out to be a hoax, Lena Dunham exposed as the white Tawana Brawley, and the media penning non-ironic editorials about how the truth and the facts don't matter because social justice, it turns out Rather was simply too far ahead of the curve. Sure, innocent men may have their lives ruined, but as another great Social Justice Warrior once said, you can't make an omelet without breaking some eggs.
