Troll accounts like this can be funny but it is pretty fucked up to credit actual reporters in an attempt to make it look real.

I wonder if POS McMurphy was ever linked to this account? He does like stirring the pot..... and seeing what sticks.

If this were true, I know that the news would be in red at the top. I was unaware of this troll. Thanks for the heads up.

Pretty stupid to attribute it to a real writer and potentially harm his reputation. This is not parody, as it is something that is absolutely conceivable. It's just a lie. They published false information that could harm Kaufman's reputation. People throw out that this or that is defamation often, but this could actually fall within that legal definition.

Parody is supposed to be funny.

now what is a little funny is the people who were dumb enough to believe it and talk smack about JF.

Parody is also supposed to have structure. Apparently it’s okay to be an asshole and blatantly spread lies if you envoi it with “lol this is a parody account man, you need a certain level of intellect to understand me. You triggered bro?”

For one, it’s twitter. And two, it’s a tryhard parody account (a pretty poor one it seems from it’s history) that clearly states it’s a parody account.

Harms no one and is getting as much attention as a tweet of a below average dog picture. Not sure why they bother attaching a real name to it though, that’s a dumb move. Plus anyone following that account probably doesn’t know those names are of real reporters.

Your first sentence directly contradicts the one following it. This is how news dissemination gets muddied, along with the names of those trying to provide it.

This is definitely where I parked my car.

Are people reading a parody twitter account (that openly states it’s a a parody/fake account) for factual news? I hope not. The account is not trying to be legitimate or fool people, so naming a reporter accomplishes nothing besides a poor grab at attention. They only way it harms the named reporter is if people take it seriously. And those who stupidly take it seriously, probably have never and will never hear of Kaufman again. It’s all quite an overreaction to a tweet from a bottom tier twitter account.

I could make a twitter account and tweet some fake news about a random reporter, and it would do just as much damage to their reputation. The Fake Urban Meyer account makes stuff up too, but people don’t take it seriously and those named in their tweets don’t have a problem with it.

One of my favorite tweets about this stupid QB competition was from a guy that said:

“So Tate Martell leaves Ohio State for Miami because Justin Fields was going to steal his starting spot. But now Martell is stuck as a backup again, and Fields might not even win the starting spot at Ohio State because a guy who couldn’t win the starting job at Kentucky.”

I don’t get some people.

It’s somewhat ironic that it was funny when this happened to Patterson and UM, but now that it hits close to home it’s mean and people are stupid for believing it. 

Regardless, this is what’s scary about the world we now live in...too many people blindly believe anything they read on the internet.

Apparently Cincy isn't allowed to post on 11W without bringing up or defending ESPN?  Why instigate something?  People need to get over it.

No, I think your hypocrisy is escaping you little buddy.

Here's a question, who gets "butthurt" first? Me, or those who run to 11W to tell us how much the boogeyman hates us? I'll await the standard deflection...

Except the part where Cincy DIDN'T bring up ESPN. Someone else did... oh the things you see and the clarity proper reading would give you.

HS

I see you missed my initial point, and that's ok. My reading comprehension is just fine.

HS
Snake64's picture

No, your first point was about Cincy always having to bring up ESPN or he couldn't post. He literally said nothing about it and wasn't responding to anyone who did say it. You were asking why provoke it but don't slander or say false things about the guy when he didn't even do it this time. Just makes you look childish. 

HS

Cincy, so true!! When it was TTUN QB people we were all making comments but when it hit close to home we don’t like it.

Didn’t the Patterson stuff come from his own Twitter, where people thought he mistakenly posted on his legit account instead of his burner account?  If so, how is that the same?  Maybe there’s something else that happened that someone could share. 

HS

The same parody account created a fake screenshot of  Patterson’s account.

Right on Cincy. I was thinking the exact same thing. All the shit that got slandered that day and people really thought anything the fake account said was real and now only an "idiot" could believe this... Oh the irony.

I saw these on IG a while ago, definitely want to report these accounts. Intelligent people like you and me won't fall for it, but the comments are loaded with people who buy it and isn't that just a little sad. Especially when the only way that you would know that it's a parody is if you actually go to the profile, which no one will do. They will just spread this.....(sigh)....fake news without even realizing it.

If you laugh, you think, and you cry, that's a full day. That's a heck of a day. You do that seven days a week, you're going to have something special.

HS
Cooper's picture

It’s almost just as concerning seeing some people think the creators of this type of thing have no culpability in the matter. One can easily discern the intent with The Onion or even Twitter parody accounts like Faux Pelini. Twitter accounts like the one above just like to throw grenades in the water and run away. That’s a textbook definition of acting in bad faith.

This is definitely where I parked my car.

In the poll era (since 1936), OSU is by far the class of the B1G:
National Titles: OSU 8, UM 3
B1G Titles: OSU 33, UM 27
Head-to-head: OSU 42, UM 36
Major Bowls (New Year's Six): OSU 20-14, UM 10-16

Here's the prior fake tweet that blew up a bit ago, for those that are curious about this accounts shenanigans. It's an interesting case of what defines "parody" vs. "false information". Seems like it is obviously the latter, despite the account claiming to be the former. I wouldn't be shocked if they got in some serious trouble in the near future if they keep in up.

Twitter does give morons a leg to stand on, its also a great place to get up to the minute news and a place for genuine real world thought.  Definitely a plus and a minus.  This user would be on the minus side.

Be careful on the 'real world thought.'  The subset of twitter users who are willing to post their hot-takes on this and that is not exactly a good cross-section of America.  Hell, given the activities of various foreign entities, twitter isn't always a good cross section of American hot-takers.

Not gonna lie, I saw Tony Gerdeman's tweet this morning about how he wasn't going to "spoil the surprise" or something about the QB situation first. Then I saw the fake tweet from a RT and my jaw dropped. Completely fooled.

If you take everything I’ve accomplished in my life and condense it down to one day, it looks decent!
