Why don’t people just check that Bible verse? Fake quotes are a bigger problem than ever when they can be shared virally on social media. TheBlaze’s Brandon Morse joined Friday’s “The Morning Blaze with Doc Thompson” to talk about some of the most popular made-up quotes.
The Bible, Quentin Tarantino’s “Pulp Fiction,” and America’s Founding Fathers are just a few examples of sources that are misattributed to quotes.
Doc shared a funny fake quote story a man published in a local Florida newspaper about "atheists and people who choose to do wrong," which included a supposed passage from the book of Romans in the Bible. In reality it was a quote from “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.”
In another example, Brandon explained that a famous Samuel L. Jackson speech in the film “Pulp Fiction” was actually made up and isn’t in the Bible at all.
