News sites are a part of and their place in the healthy news media landscape. Advertisers should treat news sites like other websites. They could be the lifeblood of your Internet business. A newspaper that is online is not quite the same as a traditional paper however. An online newspaper is an online version of a regular printed periodical, sometimes with an online edition available.
It’s not difficult to see that much of the information on many of these sites is genuine but there’s plenty of fake news available. Social media has made it easy for anyone to build a website, including businesses, and quickly circulate whatever they choose to. On the most well-known social platforms, there are hoaxes and rumors all over. Fake news websites don’t just belong to Facebook but they’re spreading over just about every web-based platform you could think of.
In the current year, there’s a lot of discussion about fake news sites, and the emergence of some of the most popular ones in the last election cycle. Some of them featured quotations from Obama or claimed endorsements from Obama. Others simply featured false information about immigration or the economy. Fake stories about Jill Stein’s Green Party campaign were circulated via email in the months leading up to the election.
Another fake news website story propagated conspiracy theories suggesting that Obama was involved in the Orlando nightclub massacre, the chemtrails and the secret society “The Order”. Some of the articles promoted conspiracy theories that were completely insubstantial and had no foundation in any way. Many of these hoaxes propagated the biggest lies, including that Obama was working in conjunction with Hezbollah and that Obama had been in contact with Al Qaeda members. They also claimed that he was planning a speech for the Muslim world.
A piece published on several news websites incorrectly claimed that Obama was wearing a camouflage outfit to the dinner held by Hezbollah leaders. This was one of the biggest hoaxes that the internet witnessed during the campaign. The article contained photos of Obama as well as a number of British stars who were in attendance during the meal. It falsely claimed that Hezbollah leader Hezbolla was said to have sat with Obama at the restaurant. There is no proof that any dinner like this was held, or that any of the mentioned people ever met the former president at any of these locations.
Fake news stories promoted many others absurd assertions, ranging from absurd to bizarre. The hoax website promoted the jestin coller as a single item. The joke website from which the tale was believed originate had purchased tickets to a top Alaskan comedy event. One example included Anchorage as the venue, Coler having performed there once.
Another example of one of the numerous fake news website hoaxes involved a Washington D.C. pizzeria which made the false claim that President Obama had stopped to eat lunch there. A photo purporting to be of Obama was circulated widely online. Jay Carney, White House press secretary confirmed that the picture was fake and appeared on several news programs shortly afterwards. Another fake report that circulated online suggested that Obama was also at the resort to play golf and was photographed on a beach. None of these stories were genuine.
The most disturbing instances of the resurgence of these fake stories included much more: fake stories which meant real threats to Obama were spread via social media. YouTube and other video sharing sites have posted several alarming examples. One example is an animated image that shows Obama hitting an a baseball bat while shouting “Fraud!” At the very least, one YouTube video had the clip. Another instance was when a video of Obama giving an address to a group of students in Kentucky was released onto YouTube, with the voice of a man who claimed to be that of Obama, however it was was clearly fraudulent. It was later taken down by YouTube for breaking the terms of service.
