From Jonathan: An oldie but goodie scam on media…

Aspiring young actress auditions and gets selected by The Chive comedy site to pretend to quit her job via photos of messages on a dry erase board which she supposedly emails to all her co-workers at 4:30 a.m. blasting her sexist, dumbass boss in August of 2010. The story goes viral by the time the Internet wakes up.


The whole story is dissected on TechCrunch (which fell hot and heavy for the hoax) here.
