Although there are many questions people may ask, we will try to cover some of the more frequent questions people have.
Is Daily Headlines Satire and/or A Fake News Website?
No, we are neither satire, nor are we fake news.
We have never, nor will we ever, post an article that is intentionally misleading, sensationalized or click bait. Although doing so would undoubtedly get us more ‘clicks’ in the short term, it destroys any credibility we have and calls into question our integrity for everything thereafter. Such tactics destroy any trust the reader(s) may have in anything we publish. Furthermore, being a propagator of the aforementioned serves only to shed a bad light on all independent media outlets.
Something that should also be mentioned is how click bait is defined from one person to the next. You could ask three different people and likely get four different answers.
Our definition of click bait is very straight forward such as follows:
Example: You Will NEVER Believe What He Found On His Sandwich, It Has Gone Viral
Reality: A pattern of scalding on his hamburger patty somehow looks like the virgin Mary’s face or only God knows what.
The headline baited you into thinking there was a half-eaten rat, bug, or something else of the sort when it wasn’t anything more than someone’s imagination running wild.
What is NOT clickbait?
Example: Mom Awakened By Her Son’s Sudden Scream, Is HORRIFIED To See What’s Hanging Off His Face
Reality: Her son was screaming because a python had somehow gotten into their home and was biting his head in an attempt to eat him.
The headline measured up to what was in the article. Nothing was sensationalized simply for the benefit of getting you to click.
Does Daily Headlines Fact Check The Articles Being Published?
We take extra precaution to ensure what we publish is entirely factual. It is our belief that if even the slightest detail is embellished, the entire article becomes a lie. With that being said, we are a very small entity in the grand scheme of things and do not have the resources at our fingertips that big media such as Fox News, Breitbart, The Blaze and others may have available to them.
Should we publish something that isn’t entirely accurate, upon being notified of the issue we will take ownership of it and correct it immediately. The very last thing we ever want to be guilty of is being a propagator of fake news or that which isn’t entirely factual.
Something you should consider when relying on liberal ‘fact-checking’ websites such as Snopes, Politifact, and other such resources is they have been known to claim something isn’t true when in fact it has been proven by multiple mainstream sources. That is not to say they are wrong about everything because the republican right has been known to twist the truth just the same, but when it comes to political matters you should exercise caution when using them to check on whether or not is entirely factual.
