    Default List of Known Fake News Sites in South Africa (and beyond)

    If you see this a small mistake and not fake news.... it is your thread.
    Fake is what you say. They never mentioned an interview with the police officer, but a phone call.

    Did you speak to the police officer mentioned in the News24 to confirm that if she got contacted or not and what she said to News24?

    Maybe the police officer said complete BS and got News24 into this.

    Same with the police statement issued “yesterday” according to you but dated today.

    I already suggested all this in the relevant article and you failed to answer.

    The police is investigating why IT issued conflicting statements. It means that News24 published what the police told them.

    Christ, now even bad reporting of something that happened is considered fake news

    These people are jumping the gun here on what will possibly BECOME a real news story soon. But it hasn't happened yet... so it's fake news.
