Advertisers and web sites will go to any lengths…ANY lengths…to get you to click on their links. Including flat-out LYING to you.
I guess we have to expect this now in these days of Fake News.
Take a look at these heinous examples of Fake News click-bait.
The only way for websites like these to stop doing this is if we stop clicking on them! C’mon, people. Stop being so damn gullible. Websites like these are USING YOU! And you’re falling for it. It’s like they’re saying to you, “You’re so stupid, you’ll click on anything,” and you’re agreeing with them!
