News sites are a part of and their place in the healthy news media landscape. Advertisers should treat news sites the same way as other websites. They could be the lifeblood for your Internet business. An online newspaper isn’t the same as a printed newspaper. An online newspaper is simply an online version of a regular printed periodical, often with an online version.
It’s not difficult to see that a lot of the content that appears on many of these sites is genuine but there’s plenty of fake news out there. Anyone can start a website, even companies, by through social media. They can quickly distribute whatever they would like. Even on the most well-known social platforms, there’s hoaxes and rumors all over. Fake news websites do not just appear only on Facebook. They have spread across every other internet-based platform.
In the current year, there’s been a lot of discussion about fake news websites, and the rise of well-known ones during the recent election cycle. Some of them promoted quotes from Obama, or purported endorsements from him. Some simply relayed false information about immigration or the economy. In the lead-up to the presidential election, false stories concerning Jill Stein’s Green Party campaign were distributed via email.
Another fake news website article promoted conspiracy theories that Obama was involved in the Orlando nightclub massacre, the chemtrails, and the secret society “The Order”. Some of the pieces promoted conspiracy theories that were completely false and had no basis in fact whatsoever. Many of these hoaxes propagated the biggest lies, including the claim that Obama was working with Hezbollah and that Obama had been in contact with Al Qaeda members. They also claimed that Obama was planning to deliver a speech to the Muslim world.
An article published in several news websites incorrectly claimed that Obama wore a camouflage dress to a dinner hosted by Hezbollah leaders. This was one of the biggest hoaxes that the internet witnessed in the course of the campaign. The article featured photographs of Obama as well as others British stars who were present at the dinner. The article falsely claimed that Hezbollah leader Hezbolla was reportedly seen alongside Obama in the restaurant. There is no proof that any such dinner was held, or that any of the aforementioned people ever met Obama at any of these locations.
The fake news story promoted several other far-fetched claims, ranging from absurd to the plainly false. One of the items advertised on the hoax site was an advertisement for a jestin coller. The joke website from which the story was supposed to originate from had purchased several tickets to a premier Alaskan comedy festival. In one instance, it listed just the city of Anchorage as its destination which is where Coler was performing in the past.
Another example of one of the numerous fake news hoaxes on websites involved an Washington D.C. pizzeria which claimed that President Obama had stopped to eat lunch there. A photo which purported to be of the President was widely shared on the internet, and an appearance by White House press secretary Jay Carney on several news shows shortly after confirmed that the image was fake. Another fake news story that circulated online claimed that Obama had also stopped to play golf at a certain resort, and was pictured enjoying a day on the beach while playing golf. None of these claims were genuine.
False stories that have threatened Obama’s life were shared on social media. are among the most disturbing examples of fake news being shared. Several disturbing examples have been seen on YouTube and other similar video sharing websites. One illustration that shows Obama swinging an a baseball bat while shouting “Fraud!” was featured on at the very least one YouTube video. In another instance, a video of Obama giving a speech to a crowd of students in Kentucky was uploaded to YouTube with the voice of a man who claimed to be that of the President, but which was clearly fake; it was later removed by YouTube for violating the site’s terms of service.
