Pro-Government News Site Announces Start of World War III

Announcement: World War III Has Begun

-read a message placed at the top of the front page of pro-government news site Origo on Tuesday, which was also marked as “extraordinary” but lacked any other context.

Clicking on the title, however, revealed that the official-looking announcement was nothing more than an article about a comment by a presenter on Russian TV who had offered their personal opinion on the situation in Ukraine.

Moreover, 444.hu noted that the “announcement” of World War III mentioned on Russian state-run television wasn’t even recent, but was made on May 31, meaning it was already nine days old by the time it was marked as “extraordinary.” [HVG]
