There's no kuntz to publishing fake news.

What makes it fake? Only a diffrent perspective maybe? I am wrong?

Every article on this trip has included lots of fake and embellished facts and quotes.
But I guess that's just how media works in general.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Except the Moment, surprisingly enough. I couldn't believe it when I saw the draft - extremely well written and accurate.

That's just because you've never heard of half the yiddish words used in that article :D

Except the fact that the Falklands was Wednesday and not Tuesday

A different prespective if you were there and you write it your style, but out right factual errors just to make it sound more dramatic etc

Explain this one from the Ami Living, "Royal Mail letter box in this British outpost some 14,000 miles away from home" when in fact its half then that, some 7000 miles

(ETA exact line from the Ami Living)

Same with Riverdale, seems like everyone is mixed up. Falklands was the third day of the cruise but not the third day of the week

I hear; waiting with bated breath for real version.

I agree reading is usally for entertainment purposes only unless coming directly from the source written directly from the source!

Very cool! Did landing and reboarding on a Wednesday raise halachic problems?
If you see something that is 50% off but don't need it, walk away and save yourself 100%
