Anonymous Hero Fake News Bombs HuffPost’s PO Box

Virginia Kruta Associate Editor

HuffPost’s Amanda Terkel opened a letter Wednesday from a reader only to learn that it wasn’t exactly fan mail. “YOU ARE FAKE NEWS. VERY FAKE NEWS,” the letter read in all capital letters.

Terkel, HuffPost’s Washington Bureau Chief, shared a photo of the letter on Twitter.

The vast majority of responses to Terkel’s tweet suggested that the letter had originated in the White House, perhaps from a new White House aide. Others suggested that the criticism meant that she must be doing something right.

But according to Terkel, after that things just got weird.

Her colleagues were of mixed opinions as to what should have been done with the DVD.

Terkel wasn’t taking any chances, however, and stood by her decision to throw it away.
