So apparently, Russia is out hacking our energy grid. Or at least that’s what some news outlets are reporting. However, it’s much ado about nothing really.
How is it nothing if Russia is hacking our grid? Well… it’s that whole #FakeNews thing. One media place says one thing, another basically reports on the same thing, and the next thing you know, it’s all the buzz.
But the devil is in the details! With just a little homework – and actually reading what was originally posted – you realize that everything was safe and sound and there was no threat at all. Seriously! They even said it in the original report.
