Here’s a prize you don’t want to win: Whopper of the Year.
The contenders are 15 statements that we’ve previously determined false, including four that we rated Huckster Propaganda. We’re not awarding a trophy or prize money, but the title conveys a fitting level of notoriety.
Today, we’re posting a list of the top false claims and inviting your feedback. Which factual blunder do you think stands out above the rest? Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and explain your reasoning.
After the New Year, we’ll post a narrowed list of finalists and invite your feedback once again. Then, on Friday, Jan. 7, we’ll announce our choice for Whopper of the Year and explain the consensus among readers.
