The latest victim of fake news source The Daily Currant: Matt Drudge, who (like the idiots at Zero Hedge last night) was taken in by this bafflingly unfunny story about Mike Bloomberg being denied a slice of pizza at a restaurant.

This is your monthly reminder that The Daily Currant is neither "legitimate news" nor "funny" but has, like Andy Borowitz, stumbled on what is by all appearances a successful business model based on writing straight fake news that people wish was true, and omitting any of the trademark "jokes" or "humor" or "point" that might tip it off as satire. (This is actually only a slightly different strategy than, say, that of, so it's kind of surprising that it's taken this long for Drudge to get taken in?)
