That Time Vice Paid A “Hacker” $5,000 For A Fake Rob Ford Story

“A hush fell over the reporters gathered outside the mayor’s office. Everyone appeared to be skimming the story at once, another astonishing branch of the Ford saga seeming to sprout before our eyes. It was exactly as plausible as everything that had come before it and everything that would come after. Except that it was false. Just completely bogus. And Vice had paid $5,000 in cash for the privilege of running it.”

Jonathan Goldsbie – Canadaland – April 2020
