During the UnderAcademy course we launched three fake news publications,
two of which produced substantial content. In review, much of the content
would more properly fit under the heading of satire but a few things are
revealed through what was published.

Corroboration is the friend of fake news… If a story can be connected to
other stories there is an increase in plausibility.  The three stories
below, as outrageous as the may seem, overlap just enough to make at least
the idea of a Pee-Wee Herman reboot seem, perhaps, plausible.
