Real or Satire

News10Live.com -

We have no patience for sites like News10Live.com. They are merely clickbait sites that dress their articles up in cheap news-like knockoff clothing in the hopes that they can either trick its visitors into sharing the article online, or trick its detractors into thinking they are purveyors of fine satire. (Clearly it’s the former.) Maybe if their stories were even…

TMZWorldNews.com -

TMZ World News is likely banking on the familiarity of TMZ to add credibility (which for some is part of the joke in and of itself). But on their contact us page: Tmzworldnews.com is the most notorious satire website in the world with the most shocking Satire News to keep its visitors in a state of disbelief. In fact, TMZWorldNews.com…

TMZHipHop.com -

Truthfully, “satire” is giving TMZ Hip Hop too much credit. Shocking news articles do not satire make! TMZHipHop banks on the familiarity and popularity of TMZ and Worldstar Hip Hop, likely in the hopes that adding the two together would make us doubly believe them. They can certainly be entertaining. But real . . . ? They posted an article…

disclose.tv -

I love a good alien story. From the horror of Alien and The Thing to more farcical offerings like Starship Troopers. Apparently, Disclose.tv does too! In their story NASA Admits It Is In Contact With Alien Species And Just Forgot To Mention It, they tell a yarn about an absentminded NASA just . . . forgetting to tell us about…

Toeindia.in -

“If wishes were fishes, we’d all cast nets.” That Frank Hubert Dune quote immediately sprung to mind when we saw this article from www.toeindia.in. Toeindia.in stands for “Times of Everything,” whatever that means. And the fine folks at LGBTQ Nation already discussed the hoax nature on this story, as well as two other ridiculous Toeindia.in stories. [Editor’s Note: We’ll revisit…

now88news.com -

Not to be confused with Now8News, though that is likely exactly what they want you to do, Now88news.com at least has the decency to provide a disclaimer: We thank Now88News for being upfront and honest about their site’s content.

morningnewsusa.com -

MorningNewsUSA is a tricky little bugger. Read onward to find out why.

newschicken.com -

There's no easy find for News Chicken. But there are clues to the site's legitamacy once you look at some of their original -- er, sorry, "original" -- stories.

now8news.com -

Of the 223 submissions for Now8News.com, the top 2 articles sent to us were by far: “Trump Calls Jesus a Loser” and “Grandmother with AK-47 Saves Cops Being Attacked by Street Gang.” Now8News isn’t upfront about their site content by means of a disclaimer, so a fair bit of investigation is needed. Fortunately we don’t have to go too far…

cartelpress.com -

For us, cartelpress.com resolves to www.huzlers.com, which we’ve previousy covered as “satire” (read: fake). In all likelihood, cartelpress.com, with its similar design, is similarly fake, set up simply to lure social media users into clicking on them and generating ad revenue. You can read more about Huzlers.com at this Fusion story from 2015. Remember: Huzler described themselves as “the most…
