News sites have their place and their place in the healthy news media landscape. Advertisers should treat news sites like different websites. They can be the lifeblood of your Internet business. An online newspaper is not the same as a printed newspaper. An online newspaper is the online edition of a regular printed periodical, sometimes with an online edition available.
While there is no doubt that the majority of the information on these websites is correct but there are also a lot of fake stories. Social media has made it easy for anyone to create websites, including businesses, and to quickly distribute whatever they choose to. Even on the most well-known social platforms, there are hoaxes and rumors that are all over. Fake news websites aren’t limited to Facebook, however; they’re spreading across almost every web-based platform you could think of.
This year, there’s been a lot of discussion about fake news websites, including the proliferation of some popular ones during the last election cycle. Some of them promoted quotes from Obama or purported endorsements from Obama. Others simply told false stories about the economy or immigration. Fake stories about Jill Stein’s Green Party campaign were circulated via email in the months leading up to the presidential election.
Other fake news stories propagated conspiracy theories of Obama being connected to the Orlando nightclub massacre, chemtrails, and the secret society called “The Order”. Some of the pieces promoted conspiracy theories that were completely insubstantial and had no foundation in fact whatsoever. Many of these hoaxes propagated the most deceitful lies, including the claim that Obama worked in conjunction with Hezbollah and that he had met with Al Qaeda members. They also claimed that he was planning a speech for the Muslim world.
A piece published on several news sites falsely claimed that Obama dressed in camouflage to the dinner held by Hezbollah leaders. This was one of the biggest hoaxes that the internet saw in the course of the campaign. The article included photos of Obama and several British celebrities who were present during the meal. The piece falsely claimed Hezbollah leader Hezbolla was seated at the restaurant with Obama. There is no proof that any dinner like this took place, or that any of these individuals ever met Obama in any restaurant.
Fake news stories promoted a variety of others absurd assertions, ranging from the absurd to the bizarre. The hoax website advertised the jestin coller as a single item. The joke website that the story was supposed to originate from, had obtained several tickets to a major Alaskan comedy festival. In one instance, it mentioned only Anchorage as its destination. Anchorage as the destination in which Coler had performed in the past.
Another example of one of the numerous fake news websites hoaxes was the Washington D.C. pizzeria which made the false claim that President Obama was eating lunch there. A picture purportedly to be of the President was widely circulated online, and a appearance by White House press secretary Jay Carney on a variety of news programs soon afterwards confirmed that the photo was fake. Another fake report that circulated online suggested that Obama also stopped at a resort to play golf and was seen on a beach. None of these items was authentic.
Some of the most alarming instances of the proliferation of these fake stories involved far worse: fake stories which meant real threats to Obama were distributed via social media. YouTube and other video sharing sites have posted several disturbing examples. One of them is an animated picture of Obama holding an baseball bat and shouting “Fraud!” was circulating on at least one YouTube video. In another instance, a video of Obama giving the speech to a large group of students from Kentucky was released onto YouTube with the voice of a man who claimed to be that of Obama, however it was which was clearly fake; it was later removed by YouTube for violating the site’s conditions of service.
