Logged into Bing this morning and saw this odd little snippet:
Does Trump ‘reportedly’ treat Putin like a ‘confidant’?
I can believe it, but is it true?
I looked for the source, Business Insider.
Who owns Business Insider?
Business Insider is nine years old, possibly center-left and uses a
You can tell it’s click-bait because…
Are other media outlets reporting this story?
I ran a search for Trump treats Putin like a confidant:
The top five results are Business Insider, Reddet, YouTube and a December
2016 piece on Kissinger by Politico.
The YouTube video is of an unnamed ex-intelligence chief who says the U.S.
needs to treat Vladimir Putin as an equal.
It looks like pro-Putin propaganda.
The YouTube video is from Sky News.
Rupert Murdoch founded Sky News in 1989.
What if I Google Trump ‘reportedly’ treats Putin like a confidant?
The top five search results are Business Insider and MSN (Bing)
and that December 2016 piece on Kissinger by Politico.
Does Trump treat Putin Like a Confidant?
I think it’s true.
But that doesn’t make it true.
Based on my research the Business Insider headline is nothing but clickbait
and has no value as news.
So, Business Insider:
