Still think fake news isn't an issue, Zuckerberg?

On Sunday, a 28-year-old North Carolina resident named Edgar M. Welch used a loaded rifle to threaten the staff and patrons at Comet Ping Pong, a pizza parlor in the Washington D.C. area.

As for why Edgar decided to assault the eatery, it all ties back to a FAKE NEWS story (known as #PizzaGate) circulating around the Internet around the time of the election.

According to the bogus #PizzaGate reports, Hillary Clinton and her former campaign chair John Podesta have been running an "elite" pedophile ring out of the eatery for years. Some conspiracy theorists have even gone on to claim there are "tunnels" underneath the restaurant to accommodate child trafficking.

Take a look at some of the FALSE claims made by trolls — and the son of Donald Trump's incoming security advisor (below):

Oakland Fire: New Video Surfaces Of Cramped Conditions As Death Toll Rises To At Least 24

We continue to learn more about the Oakland warehouse fire that took place on Friday night — and it is only getting worse as we follow up on reports.

As we know, the death toll was expected to rise sharply from the fire as first responders finally made their way into the building this morning, and it appears that the total number of dead may be even higher than expected.

According to a report in the New York Times, the death toll is currently at 24 people (up from nine victims as of yesterday), and yet first responders have still only searched somewhere around one-fifth of the entire building.

Not only that, but officials told the Times that they don't yet believe they are even close to where the fire started — and they expect many, many more bodies as they are able to search deeper into the structure.

Ugh.

And the building — an artistic, commune-type living and work space known as the Oakland Ghost Ship — is coming under controversy more and more for the allegedly un-permitted activities and construction that took place there in the past.

Now, though, we are getting a look at what these underground concerts and performances inside the building looked like, including a video from an earlier EDM performance that went down there in June.

The show, an Obscura Machina event that featured several different DJs, also hints at a crowded, cramped, and unusual space, as you can see in this video from June at the Ghost Ship (below):

Even though Art Basel might have mostly been fun, games, and charity for Madonna, she got real about politics while down in Miami this weekend, too.

We know the Material Girl had her fun with ex-flame Sean Penn on Friday night at a charity auction for the African nation of Malawi, but Madge also turned her focus on our nation, too — and one man in particular: Donald Trump.

With audible gasps coming from audience members at various points throughout her charity auction night, Madonna ripped into The Donald several times, even going so far as to say she was "ashamed to be an American" because of his election and rise to power.

She also re-told a story of doing a photo shoot in a bedroom at one of Trump's resorts in Palm Beach years ago, and recounted jumping into his bed for it (below):

Oakland Fire Ripped Through EDM Party That Did Not Have City Permits — Dozens Of People Are Still Missing As Officials Prepare For The Worst

| Filed under: Music MinuteR.I.P.Sad SadScary!NewsViral: News

This tragic story is still on our minds after breaking yesterday, and we are absolutely heartbroken for all the victims and their loved ones.

As you remember, a fire ripped through an EDM performance at a warehouse-type structure in Oakland on Friday night, killing at least nine people and trapping likely dozens more.

Now, officials have revealed that the event organizers would have needed special permits to hold the rave there — permits they apparently did not have.

To boot, Oakland's Mayor Libby Schaaf and Planning and Building Director Darin Ranelletti revealed at a press conference late yesterday evening that a complaint had been made recently about "unpermitted construction" taking place in the warehouse just a few weeks ago.

Officials were still investigating that claim as the fire broke out on Friday night.

The fear, of course, is that because the structure is so unique — and perhaps dangerous — it could have trapped far more people inside than what would happen in a typical fire of this type, and officials are already planning for the worst when it comes to search and recovery.

There's one (major) problem:
