Saw this mentioned yesterday, but didn't follow up or much care, until here it is on the BBC:

US 'fake news' kingpin Paul Horner found dead at 38 - BBC News

So tired of checking everything from unfamiliar sources, or even familiar ones.

Expecting him to jump out of the coffin and yell, PSYKE!

Fuck that guy.
