I repeatedly have to remind a select group of friends when they send me sensationalist stories from The Onion that those stories are satire and not real. Their response to them is as funny as the posts themselves but extremely scary at the same time. For stories they send me from other sites I'm not familiar with I do a search for a reputable source with the same information. If I can't find any I tell them not to believe that site either. It's a constant whack-a-mole scenario. The average person just isn't that discerning.
