However, The Deerfield Valley News has proudly been publishing fake news for more than a decade. It happens as part of our annual April Fools edition. The difference, of course, is that we aren’t out to trick anyone into believing that the stories published in our April Fools section have any basis in reality. We had our tongues squarely planted in our cheeks while writing the fake stories that appear on page A1 of this edition, just have we have done in years past.
Once a year, we’re proud to publish fake news. An we intend to continue doing so around April 1 for years to come. We hope readers enjoy our foolishness. And we hope we fooled a few along the way.
