News that ‘the crash that killed Tucker Carlson was no accident’ was no mistake … it was fake

In a story that encapsulates just how reckless social media can be in disseminating fake news — and how gullible people can be — a false report that Fox News’ Tucker Carlson was killed in a car crash swept across Facebook.

A fake news site claimed Tucker “succumbed to his injuries and died overnight after being hit head-on while driving home,” according to The Inquisitr.

…and the death hoax was shared on Facebook more than 16K times overall.
