Albany Station Falls for Bogus Coke Story

WNYT (Albany) posted a story to their website that Coca-Cola was Recalling 2 Million Bottles of their Coke that had the name 'Michael' on them.

The station reported that a disgruntled employee was spiking sodas with dirt.

It was a juicy story and it also was not true.

The station pulled the story from the Empire News website which posts fake stories under the guise of satire.

Not long after WNYT posted the story on their website, a number of people called them out on social media and the station pulled the story. 

While the story is off their site, the egg is still on their faces.
