NewsWire-24.com is based in the U.K. and geared mostly towards that audience. We looked at two stories, as best we could, to determine if it’s real or not. Read onward:

butthatsnoneofmybusiness.com

It’s clear that BTNOMB is primarily an entertainment site, filled with the sorts of “juicy” celeb stories that may or may not eventually be proven true — and by the time the gossip is proven, everyone has moved on to the next big story. But are they real? Satire? Or something worse?

But is it real? Or satire?

18karatreggae.com

We can’t tell if 18karatreggae’s headlines are considered ClickBait in Jamaica, or if they’re just really bad at writing them. Three stories check out; 1 does not. Are they real? Satire? Or ClickBait?
