On Thursday’s show, Colleen and I were forced to issue another BSS alert. BSS, for the uninitiated, stands for Bogus Story Syndrome. BSS occurs when someone finds a fake news story on the Internet and shares it on social media.
Or worse yet, the radio.
Which happened on Wednesday right here on myTalk 107.1.
During the Lori & Julia show, a fake story about actor Johnny Depp visiting Stillwater, MN was referenced.
As if it were real.
Unfortunately, the story was bogus.
And we felt the need to remind people just how dangerous BSS can be.
