We’ve talked frequently before about fake news sites. This election year, there’s been a lot of focus on them with some suggesting the swayed the election. A researcher has put together a pretty comprehensive list of sites.

They fall into 4 categories.

1:  Misleading websites meant to insight anger with twisted and distorted headlines.

2.  Misleading and unreliable information.

3.  Sites with clickbait headlines

4.  Purposely satirical sites with purposefully unbelievable stories like The Onion.

You may see some sites you enjoy on there. And you’re perfectly free to make your own decisions.  But here’s a list of sites this particular researcher has concerns about. I know I see a couple of sites I enjoy reading on this list.  Not all of these sites are fake, but some of them do tend to do for the sensational.

The researcher makes a great suggestion here. If something makes you outraged or angry, look around and try to confirm it.

Here’s his list of sites.  I’m sure there are some you’d like to remove or a few sites you’d like to add.
