NY Post RGV story: Big Fake News

Observations Commentary

If you want to know what real “FAKE NEWS” is, consider The New York Post and the dodgy story it recently published (April

13) about the Rio Grande Valley. The headline sets the salacious tone: “Texas oasis of wealth and luxury thrives on trafficking near the border.”

That story paints a perfect picture of fake news. It mixes in a few facts with unsubstantiated claims from anonymous sources and basically reads like the National Enquirer sans the story about the lap dancer and the Hollywood movie star and the child they have produced. The story leaves you wondering if The Post mistook the Rio Grande Valley for Miami back in the cocaine heydays of the 1980s. Luxuries and drug money and flashy cars as far as the eye can see.
