Our June member drive is live: protect this resource!
Right now, we need your help during our short June member drive to keep the local news you read here every day going. This has been a challenging year, but with your help, we can get one step closer to closing our budget gap. Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership.

So, this recent outing of YouTube ingenue LonelyGirl15 as a fake was hardly surprising to many of "her" fans, but between that and the more mean-spirited Craigslist sex ad hoax by Jason Fortuny posing as a submissive female (and then posting the contact info from the respondents), we're a bit disheartened at how suspicious we're becoming of everything.

That other YouTube ingenue-in-the-hood Little Loca? Yeah, she's a fake too. As with LG15, it's hardly surprising, but still...

Even this girl explaining how to tell a fake YouTube person is, we're pretty sure, a fake. Then we have all the Little Loca impersonators, not to mention Lisa Nova's "Teenie Weenie" persona. All we need now is a Little Loca impersonator doing an impersonation (as LL) of Teenie Weenie, and we'll have a fake of a fake of a fake of a ... where were we?

Oh, who cares? It's more entertaining watching this than reality TV.
