News sites are a part of and their place in an environment of healthy news media. Advertisers should view news sites the same way as different websites. They can be the lifeblood for your Internet business. A newspaper that is online is not quite the same as a traditional paper, though. A newspaper online is the online edition of a regular printed periodical, sometimes with an online version also available.
It’s not difficult to see that a lot of the information on some of these sites is genuine however, there’s a lot of fake news out there. Anyone can create websites, including companies, by using social media. They can quickly share whatever they want. Hoaxes and rumors are all over the place, even on the most well-known social media networks. Fake news sites aren’t restricted to Facebook but they’re spreading across almost any web-based platform you can think of.
In the current year, there’s a lot of talk about fake news websites, including the emergence of some of the most popular ones in the last election cycle. Some of them featured quotes from Obama or claimed endorsements from Obama. Some simply relayed false information about the economy or immigration. False stories about Jill’s Green Party campaign were circulated via email in the weeks leading up to the presidential election.
Other fake news websites promoted conspiracy theories about Obama being connected to the Orlando nightclub massacre, chemtrails and the secret society called “The Order”. Certain articles promoted conspiracy theories that were completely insubstantial and had no basis whatsoever in the real world. Many of these hoaxes propagated the biggest lies, including that Obama worked in conjunction with Hezbollah and that he had been in contact with Al Qaeda members. They also claimed that he was planning to deliver a speech to the Muslim world.
One of the biggest hoaxes that were reported on the internet in the run up to the presidential election was an article that ran in several prominent news sites that incorrectly claimed that Obama was wearing a camouflage outfit at a dinner with Hezbollah leaders. The article contained photos of Obama as well as a number of British stars who were in attendance at the dinner. It falsely claimed Hezbollah leader Hezbolla was said to have sat alongside Obama in the restaurant. There is no proof that a dinner of this kind took place, or that any of the aforementioned people ever had a conversation with Obama at any restaurant.
Fake news stories promoted a variety of others absurd assertions, ranging from the ridiculous to the outlandish. One item promoted on the hoax website was an advertisement for a jestin coler. The joke website from which the story was supposed to originate had bought tickets to the top Alaskan comedy festival. One instance included Anchorage as the destination, Coler having performed there once.
Another example of a fraudulent hoax on a news website was the Washington D.C. pizza joint that claimed President Obama was visiting to enjoy lunch there. A photo purportedly to be of the President was widely circulated on the internet, and an appearance by White House press secretary Jay Carney on various news programs shortly after confirmed that the photo was fake. Other fake news stories circulated online suggested that Obama was also spotted stopping to play golf at a specific resort, and was pictured lying on a beach at the same time. None of these claims were authentic.
False stories that have threatened the life of Obama were spread via social media are among the most alarming examples of fake stories being spread. A number of disturbing examples have been found on YouTube and other similar video sharing websites. One illustration of Obama swinging an a baseball bat while shouting “Fraud!” At the very least, one YouTube video featured the clip. Another example was a clip of Obama speaking to students in Kentucky. YouTube uploaded it with a fake voice which claimed to be the President. YouTube later removed the video due to violating the terms of service.
