Review caught in web hoax

The Review was drawn into a media hoax Tuesday without its permission or involvement.

A story was published Tuesday on the website UnitedMediaPublishing.com stating that Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers appeared at an Appleton event for Sen. Bernie Sanders and contained a quote from Rodgers that was purported to be from the Plymouth Review.

The Plymouth Review did not cover the Sanders rally. Rodgers and actor Olivia Munn were not at the event and did not endorse Sanders, according to a press spokesperson for the Sanders campaign, as well as a Twitter message later in the day from Rodgers which stated that he and Munn “definitely weren’t in Wisconsin today (Tuesday).”

The Rodgers quote, Rodgers speaking to The Review and the endorsement were all fabrications and completely false.

Following a contact with the website from Review Associate Publisher Ian Johanson, the attribution for the quote was changed, first to the Plymouth Times and later to the Peshtigo Times Review.

Although the website contains no disclaimer, UnitedMediaPublishing.com is a fake news site carrying fabricated news stories such as Christian couples “divorcing en masse” in protest of same-sex marriage.
