Travis Pietsch was a journalist for USA Today in 2015.


A byline for Pietsch appeared on the story Public more gullible than ever on the front page of the October 22, 2015 issue of USA Today,[1] which focused on a study by Chad Stern of the Sam Houston Institute of Technology as to whether the public were easily fooled by bogus news stories and made-up research from fictional institutions.

Behind the scenes

  • Public more gullible than ever was in fact a meta article notifying uninformed readers of the fictional nature of the special "front page wrap" for the real life October 22, 2015 issue of USA Today.
