Trump supporters easily fooled by absurdly fake news created by Macedonian teenagers

*snip* What’s even more amazing about these websites is that the people who run them tell BuzzFeed they don’t actually care about American politics — they just know that starting a pro-Trump website that spews out misinformation to Facebook and other social media is a goldmine right now.

“Yes, the info in the blogs is bad, false, and misleading but the rationale is that ‘if it gets the people to click on it and engage, then use it,” one student in Veles told BuzzFeed.

“I started the site for a easy way to make money,” another Veles teenager told the publication. “In Macedonia the economy is very weak and teenagers are not allowed to work, so we need to find creative ways to make some money.”

To get an idea of what many Trump backers are seeing on their Facebook feeds, here’s an example of some recent fake news stories written by the Macedonian websites:

  • “Oprah tells Fox News host that ‘some white people have to die’ — her reasoning is unbelievable”
  • “Pope Francis forbids Catholics from voting for Hillary!”
  • “BREAKING: Proof surfaces that Obama was born in Kenya — Trump was right all along”
  • “WikiLeaks Just ROCKED Hillary With This List Of 13 TREASONOUS Acts That She Committed”
The young people running the sites tell BuzzFeed that they tried experimenting with pro-Bernie Sanders sites earlier this year, but that none of them got anywhere close to the clicks that pro-Trump sites get on a daily basis.

In a galaxy far far away...
Gee, how many colored people still believe Michael Brown was on his knees, hands in the air, begging for his life when the white cop standing in front of him shot him in the back of the head?

Why did you just claim that a large number of people believe something you just made up?

You garbage must really be desperate, and believe me it's showing, when you post total bullshit like this. LOL!

Hurry, you've only got 4 days to convince us that Trump is a 4 headed alien that eats live children off of virgin pussy.

You're quoting RawStory, and claim Trump supporters are easily fooled?

That's awesome, isn't it?

With the CFR's control of the MSM for so long, telling unsubstantiated bullshit for so long, and now you are whining about the free market making money off of young suckers?

That's right, get it out of your system.

Fox news just apologized for false claims it made on Hillary being indicted and Hannity recently apologized for the spreading the false story that Michelle, Warren and Obama scrubbed their tweets and unfriended Hillary. So....ya, sounds like they're easily fooled.

Stopped watching at 43 seconds. As soon as you use the words "conspiracy theory" as a crutch for your idea, you have no legitimate intellectual heft what so ever. It absolves you from having to use logic at all.

Good for Fox news..

I give it the same credibility I do RawStory.

AP, UPI, Reuters.

This election season I put little faith in any televised news broadcasts.

What I consider credible are the tens of thousands that show up for Trump rallies and the handfuls for Clinton. Puff on that.
