‘All true’ – D.Trump
NewsBiscuit – has done to journalism what flat earthers have done to NASA. It has redefined the word truth, beaten it to death and buried it in an undisclosed location. This collection of stories from 2013-17 walks a fine line between absolute twaddle and actionable slander. NewsBiscuit – real fake news.
Welcome to Ye Olde NewsBiscuit Gift Shoppe – ‘abandon cash all ye who enter’
Turning left down a darkened alley, you spy an old curiosity shop – brimming with strange potions and unwanted bric-a-brac. A half-lit sign swings precariously from flaking brickwork. The letters WO-LWO-THS are obscured by crude graffiti declaring this to be ‘NewsBiscuit, purveyor of filth and lies’. Inside you will find all manner of oddities, authored by our NewsBiscuit team. Some of it barely legal. Some of it barely legible. Please browse from our exotic wares; including well-thumbed books, novelty gizmos and a bespoke collection of c$ck rings.
