Recently I sent an email out to one Linkedin contact asking if he's interested in advertising on either thecheers.org or superbious.com. The answer was "They all look like fake news sites...which they probably are. I really hope no one is actually advertising on your website! If they are, please send them are way!"

Well, I'm aware that there was recently a news craze about fake news sites, fake news articles, and fake news writers, who make tons of money writing this crap. When I first read them, I'll be honest, I was actually thinking, why haven't I done anything like that. And then realising that yes, I could have, but even if I would have, there would have been a big disclosure somewhere in the article, assuming the article wasn't nonsense enough to make it clear to anyone with IQ even slightly above 90 that it's fake and meant to be as one.

It seems that the after the fake news sites anti-propaganda (and deservingly so), some people stopped thinking and started assuming that everything is fake. It must be! Sad truth of course is that there is lots of intentionally misleading and fake stuff in the internet. Some even say, including one recent fake news writer herself, that Trump won partly because of her articles. But that's already another story.

Thecheers.org isn't a fake news site, and more than that, it's not even a news site in general. Obviously it's not the most serious site either, it has something about everything. From crap to quality, from stupidly fake to reality. We do publish articles from both sides of the isle when it comes to politics and even religion - people's opinions are different and so are the views of the writers. I don't like Trump, I don't even like Hillary, but then again, most of the people don't. And of course, on the sites I own, I do publish stuff on them that goes better with my own views. Yet, when I have a good writer from the opposite side, I might not like what he or she has to say, but I still publish it.

Truth be told, I have written a lot of fake stuff myself in the past, and will continue to do so. However, calling it fake news in the recent sense, or even misleading articles would be idiocy. For example, on thecheers.org I've written weird and crazy shit under the pen name of Harry Twohooter and also under my own name. Here are a few headlines from the past:

This shit is fun to write, possibly way more fun than to actually read it. But still, it's fake, and it's...well, fake.

But before you're accusing anywone of running a "fake news site" before actually looking into it, it makes you look really superficial. And stupid. And you ruined my morning. Thank you. And god bless.

It was a usual protest demonstration, where thousands took part chanting slogans against anti-national elements while marching on the busy streets of Guwahati, the virtual capital of northeast India. But aftershocks of the protest march elongated for days in the trouble-torn region, where a section of media outlets even played the trick.
