The thing is - the Mississippi Herald website only appeared in November last year, and is linked to two other ‘fake’ news sites The Denver Inquirer and the Florida Sun Post.
The Mississippi Herald website only recently started posting stories - days before the IVF hoax went viral.
Local paper Mississippi Sun-Herald told The Mirror Online that there is no such paper as the Mississippi Herald, and that with only anonymous sources, no named author, the outlandish story is unverifiable and likely fake news.
The other reason we know it's a fake? We got fooled by it in November last year.
Not only is it fake news - it's OLD fake news.
