If you actually read the article they must be making a fair amount of money through advertising, I don't think the fake news is being used to divide SA but rather drive enormous amounts of traffic to the sites.

“silverton, Pretora”. The level of journalism and the lack of editorial checks. Sad.
Do you think editor should be responsible to correct other people's tweet as well?

I once read about a journalist who admitted to generating over R60k pm through his fake news site. He said his primary goal was to make money. I don't know if it's true but...

Just have a look at the amount of times the journalist couldn't get the website right. It changes from *stories.co.za to *storie.co.za and back throughout.
