MODS/EDITORS: English is not my first language. Feel free to edit. Also a textbox for this kind of message to eds would be nice in the submission process.

I tought it would be interesting to report this soft news:

A quote [] on the French equivalent of [], [] (originally []), appears to have made the news around the world.

At first, Metly buzz [] posted an article about the quote. Other websites picked it up, and soon enough, important news websites around the world (en [], fr []) and other websites (i.e. reddit []) were talking about it.

Although personnally, I don't mind light-hearted news from times to times, this kind of reporting from dubious sources without any background checking is a little disturbing. What do you think?
