USA: Viking ship discovered near Mississippi River – fact or fiction?

“A group of volunteers cleaning up the shores of the Mississippi river near the biggest city in Tennessee, have stumbled upon the remains of an ancient boat encrusted in mud. A team of archeologists from the University of Memphis that was rapidly called to the site, confirmed that the ship is most certainly a Viking knarr, suggesting the Norse would have pushed their exploration of America a lot further than historians previously thought.”

The only thing is that it is fake news. World News Daily Report is noteworthy for such preposterous headlines as “Dead Cow Brought Back to Life by Lightning” and “Kentucky Man Sentenced to 235,451 Years in Jail,” this tabloid-style site emphasizes the “faux” in faux.
