Factual Checkboxes

 

Enable images!

So this was inspired by my husband sharing an article with me that was blatantly false, where the reporter and all those sharing/retweeting it did absolutely no fact checking. Minimal retractions, if any, were issued once the falsehoods came to light (by the institution involved clearing the record with what was actually going on). Bleh, it's just frustrating when articles are lying or extremely misleading - so many people are led astray. 

So this is a more serious comic but maybe you can find some humor in it? My husband and I can now respond with "it's not one of the boxes" when the situation fits, so that's a little humorful.

A: Why did you publish this article?
B: It checked all of the boxes!
A: But it's not factual?
B: That's not one of the boxes!
