The April fool's joke in times of Fake News

And? Also have smiled at least inwardly, as you have read, the Böögg will now roasted eco-friendly over a gas flame instead of burned at the stake? Or do you have it – bloody hell! – even believed?

The current 1. April is the day that the eleven-year-old daughters, and the journalist of your favorite medium indulge yourself in the dubious lack of seriousness.

The beautiful, supposedly ancient custom, however, is threatened with acute: Can, may, must be spread as too serious on this day, is still Fake News? So do exactly what is alleged in the media (social and other) during the 364 other days?

no, says, for example, the "Süddeutsche Zeitung". After the ugly Controversies of the sheet leaves the Finger. And a Journalist in Berlin, known to the righteous: "April fools me in times of Fake News only adds to the nerves." The funny thing, Microsoft has lost. The company should have advised her 135000 employees, completely irony-free, to abstain from April fools. Because these might trigger "unwanted news flows".

However, It is uncertain whether it is this message not a joke. Because the tension between bitter serious "lying press"-allegations and a healthy media skepticism if it is to make humorous relief. For example, in the colleagues of our partner newspaper "Bund". You wrote that the Bern government had instructed the capital of the sheets by means of media communication to spread no April fools. Because of the "dwindling trust in the media should not be reinforced by deliberate misreporting".

We have believed it for a moment. But laughed heartily.
