Last fall, TLDR covered a bunch of hoaxes. Some we liked, most we didn't. On this episode, we talk to Paulo Ordoveza and Adrienne LaFrance, a couple of people who have devoted themselves to trying to debunk the innumerable falsehoods flying around the internet.

Thanks for bring this up… I was always a little wary of twitter pics account. Because they didn't attribute any photos.

I also coined PicPedant the snopes of social media image aggregators.
