Sham news sites make big bucks from fake views

Forbes and Business Insider are both well-known news sites. So is forbesbusinessinsider.com a new spin-off?
No. It has nothing to do with either Forbes or Business Insider.
In fact, it's a site that copies and pastes entire articles from other publishers and reposts them with very slight changes.

There are 350 million registered domain names on the internet. Experts say it's impossible to count how many are sham news sites.

But just like legitimate websites, they earn money from the major tech companies that pay them to display ads.

Perhaps a shorter list of credible News sources would be better :p its easier to remember a shorter list of valid news sources than a long list of fake news sources.

Let's just say they have a particularly... errr, liberal policy in their usage of the exclamation mark. Liberal as in a liberal sprinkling.
