WLLR's Is It The News...Or Not?


Which is true?

The Headlines:

  • Couple Names Four Kids After The Beatles (FAKE)
  • Man Builds Own Working Jet Pack (FAKE)
  • Parrot Places An Amazon Order (REAL)

Buddy the parrot is so good at mimicking his owner, even Alexa, the voice control device, can't tell the difference. London woman Corienne Pretorius got a notification from Amazon that she'd ordered a set of gift boxes. “I hadn’t ordered anything. I asked my husband and my son who didn’t know what I was talking about," Corienne says. “So then I asked Alexa, ‘What was my last order?’ and she said it was these golden gift boxes." Corienne adds that she had heard mumbled and saying words like "Alexa" but didn't think much of it until after Buddy's order was placed. Then, she "laughed out loud." Fortunately for Corienne, she can get a refund.
