You can’t believe everything you see on the Internet.
Last week, millions of people—including many news producers—learned that lesson in a very interesting way.
A very popular Internet video turned out to be a hoax.
The video was of a girl twerking (a current dance fad) in her room; she dances so hard that she falls onto a candle and her pants catch on fire.
More than nine-million people watched the video.
The video was shown on hundreds of newscasts, including major networks ABC and some local Fox Network affiliates.
