Fake News About Buttigieg Circulating Online

Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg is the target of a fake news clipping claiming he was arrested as a teenager for killing dogs.

The Twitter user who came up with the bogus story and the newspaper that allegedly published it both say the clipping is a fake.

The person who shared it on his Twitter account has repeatedly said the story and the clipping are fakes and that it was supposed to be a joke.

The newspaper where the story supposedly appeared, The South Bend Tribune, has said it never published the story.

But it’s gotten more than two-thousand shares on Facebook and two-thousand retweets.
