Fake News Site National Report Admits to Setting Traps to Damage Conservatives

fknwsThe left is actively planting fake news to trick conservatives into sharing the stories so they can ridicule them. I covered this previously, but there is much more to the story.

The publisher of the fake news site National Report, “Allen Montgomery” (a pseudonym), brazenly admitted to Wyoming’s Casper Star-Tribune, “We have been targeting Tea Party types recently as they are the most gullible and are willing to spread misinformation across the internet with little/no research.” Conservative Headlines, which has compiled a list of sites that “troll conservatives,” observed, “The site NationalReport.net seems to be actively trying to embarrass conservatives on social media.”

People think it is a mainstream conservative/Tea Party site because they have a picture of Sarah Palin and Ted Cruz in their top banner. When a conservative website falls for one of their hoaxes and syndicates the story, left-wing websites then mock them.

One article on National Report fooled a Fox News host in 2013.
