In June an untrue article about Pat Robertson was promoted across social media resulting in people believing that Robertson supported husbands spanking their wives.
Now another satire article is spreading on Facebook. The Freewood Post has published an article which reports that Texas Republican Senator Ted Cruz said, "I don’t know about you, but I believe in the Jesus who died to save himself, not enable lazy followers to be dependent on him."
Cruz did not say that. Meanwhile this satire article has received more than 21,000 times on Facebook.
The Free Wood Post website promotes itself with the slogan "news that's almost reliable." The website's disclaimer states, "Free Wood Post is a news and political satire web publication, which may or may not use real names, often in semi-real or mostly fictitious ways. All news articles contained within FreeWoodPost.com are fiction, and presumably fake news."
A previous article on the website featured the headline "Jesus Christ Files Lawsuit Against GOP For Slander."
