article article A lot of people read news stories from sites like BuzzFeed and Daily Dot and believe they are real, according to a study by researchers at the University of North Carolina.
A few people read articles from sites that aren’t reliable, such as Breitbart News and Drudge Report.
“There’s a lot of misinformation out there,” says Dr. Andrew Zimbalist, who conducted the study with his colleague Mark Adler.
“And a lot that is published, for some reason, is not necessarily accurate or completely accurate.”
The researchers analyzed how many fake news stories are posted on the web every day.
They found that a lot are not true, but they also found that some are true.
“A lot of the false news that we’ve seen on the internet is actually not a whole lot different from the false stories that people read in print,” Zimball says.
He and Adler also found some trends in how people consume news.
“One of the things that we found that was surprising is that, as more people become online, they’re actually more likely to read articles that are clearly false,” he says.
“So, for example, if there’s a story about Hillary Clinton being in a coma, they’ll be more likely than someone who is not an expert to read that.”
The study was published online in the journal Science Advances.
Zimballs co-authors are Jennifer Dolan, a doctoral student at the university; John W. Brown, a postdoctoral fellow in psychology at North Carolina State; and Joshua A. Tashkin, a Ph.
D. candidate in journalism at NC State.
The researchers collected information from 2,000 users of social media platforms to get a baseline estimate of the frequency of fake news articles.
They then compared that data with the average number of fake articles posted daily on the site, and with the number of times a false story was picked up by people in general.
They also looked at how many people actually clicked on the articles, whether they shared the article, and how many times people clicked on a link to the article.
“We also looked for differences in how readers read news from different sources,” says Adler, who is now working at the Center for Science and Democracy.
“For example, we found some differences between readers of newspapers and people who read the same kinds of news on other platforms.
We also found differences in what kind of news people read.”
People who are not experts read more articles than people who are, and readers who are more interested in reading the same kind of content tend to read more stories.
“That suggests to us that the people who aren’t experts may be more interested,” ZIMBALL says.
Adler says this study was limited by the fact that the fake news users were primarily young people, and it doesn’t take into account how the sites they were reading were written.
However, he says there are some caveats.
“The way that we tested it, the way we measured the accuracy of the content, the methodology, all of those things, you could look at a very small subset of the sites and see that they’re more accurate than what we’d expect based on how the articles are written,” he said.
“But you could also look at the sites that are really, really good at their content, and you would see that the quality is very high.
So it’s a very, very good set of tools to look at.”
The results of the study are just the latest piece of evidence showing how the internet can be used to spread misinformation.
Last week, researchers at Harvard University and the University at Buffalo found that when the media were presented as fact, readers were more likely.
“They’re not going to click on the headlines, they don’t want to read the stories,” Adler said.
The internet is also used by a lot more people to spread false information.
Earlier this year, for instance, researchers found that people who were exposed to fake news on Facebook were more inclined to believe in conspiracy theories, and were more supportive of white supremacist groups.
The problem, of course, is that these are all ideas that have been pushed by the likes of Alex Jones and his ilk.
It’s unclear whether these groups will be able to spread fake news in the future, as the media themselves are increasingly becoming more accurate in the information they present.
But with more and more people using social media to spread disinformation, the internet and its algorithms are making it easier to fake the news.
