A Letter to Nationally “Reputable” Sources

Newsweek, New York Post, New York Daily News, and Politico…


According to nationally reputable news sources, Simpson is going to be the site of a presidential forum hosted by New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio. That’s all fine and dandy but here’s the catch… it’s not completely true.

Since our founding a little under a year ago, “The Acorn” has been Simpson’s de facto disseminator of disinformation, spreader of satire and communicator of comedy. So when national news sites decided to publish an incomplete story with unconfirmed facts about Simpson, they crossed the line into our territory.

Politico, the New York Daily News, the New York Post and Newsweek… this is your only warning. You don’t spread disinformation about Simpson… WE DO.

And if you continue to publish stories like this, we’ll be forced to satirize you. And you don’t want that.

Publishing patently untrue stories with a kernel of truth is what “The Acorn” does, not nationally respected and widely-read publications. Besides, we do it a whole lot better than any news site dedicated to the “truth.”

So here’s the deal Politico, the New York Daily News, the New York Post, Newsweek and any other news sources that may have escaped our sight, leave the satirizing of Simpson to us. We’ve got it covered.

Besides, your issue with accuracy makes it seem like you’ve got enough problems of your own to take care of.

With Love,
The Acorn
