National Hug a Newsperson Day

April 4 is not just another ordinary day… it’s National Hug A Newsperson Day! Seriously. It is. And in case you think this is just another fake news story, think again. I researched it and hereby confirm National Hug a Newsperson Day is, indeed, 100% legit. Oddly enough, according to the official website, the best way to observe the occasion is to hug your newsperson, but no worries if you aren’t able to do it in person. You can send virtual hugs to all your faves by posting the official hashtag to social media.

While I’m a day late (okay make it four days late) and a dollar short and a virtual hug does not pack the same emotional punch as a live hug from an actual human being, I’d like to acknowledge my son and all his colleagues at The Daily Caller. #HugANewspersonDay. Consider yourselves hugged.
