Fake news articles on facebook may be a new low for society

If you haven't had your time wasted by one of these yet, consider yourself lucky (here's the example pictured).  But it will probably happen to you soon, and you're going to be pissed.

It's bad enough that websites like AOL feature ridiculous misleading headlines and stories to try to suck you in, and now we have to deal with straight up lies too.

I don't understand why anybody would get enjoyment out of this.  How invaluable does your time have to be if inventing fake news seems like a worthwhile use of it?

In my book the creators of these things are on the same level as people who don't clean up after their dogs.

And for the record, I knew this one was a hoax before I clicked on it; my NBA sources are too good not to have already been informed of something like that...
