Example: [Collected via Facebook, June 2014]
Origins: On 24 June 2014, Empire News published an article positing that talk show host Oprah Winfrey had posted $900,000 bail for so-called "sexy felon" Jeremy Meeks, whose "handsome mug shot" had gone viral on the Internet, with an eye towards hiring him as a host for a talk show on her OWN network:
Apparently all the attention Meeks has gotten since being arrested has only helped him, as billionaire actress and media mogul Oprah Winfrey has reportedly agreed to pay Meeks' $900,000 bail, with the intent of giving him a job as a talk show host on her OWN Network.
Empire News's disclaimer page notes that it "is a satirical and entertainment website."
