The Margin: Can you pick out the fake news stories that duped millions of people this year?

Hey, did you read that story about Monica Lewinsky getting offered a high-level job in the Trump administration? Or that Kanye West is actually a white kid from just outside Boise? It’s true. Has to be. Says so right here on my Facebook FB, -1.60% page. Like! Share!

Actually, no. Please don’t. Those aren’t real news stories. In fact, they’re not even real fake news stories. They might as well be, though, because they aren’t all that much more ridiculous than some of the whoppers that went viral in the past 12 months.

Yes, 2016 was the year fake news went mainstream and, as some — particularly in the Hillary Clinton camp — contend, potentially played a factor in deciding the presidency for Donald Trump.
