City says social media post false: Reviewing for potential illegalities

The City of Amarillo issues a statement on Friday concerning a post on the Amarillo By Mourning Facebook page.

"For years, the City of Amarillo has ignored the frequent false, misleading, and defamatory posts by the “Amarillo By Mourning” Facebook page.

"Today, that page posted a false and doctored image of an email portrayed as a city email. That email is not real and does not exist. We are reviewing the post for potential illegalities. 

"This kind of attack on our community using false cyber-propaganda is dangerous, and you as a community are entitled to know the truth so that you can carefully choose your information outlets," said Jordan Schupbach, Director of Communications for the City of Amarillo.
