NBCPolitics.org is a special variety of fake site. Its stories appear to be genuine—but since the site is unethical and a lie, you can’t assume every one is—and it does not appear to be attempting satire or to fool mainstream news sources. To be frank, I don’t know what the hell the site’s operators think they are doing.
Nonetheless, it is a fake site, an unethical one, and especially nasty. It is, to start with, stealing NBC’s logo and name, as well as the new stories it posts, which come from other sources, at least until the site posts its own fake story with the real ones. Don’t put it past them. You cannot trust a fake site.
NBCPolitics.Org is also written by illiterate morons. Here is a description of the site from one of the links:
This is a representing website for nbcnews.com only posting about politics from and outside the United States.All the article are used from big websites based on politics.Source information is included in every post.
Unless NBC has declined even beyond what watching MSNBC would have one believe, this is a smoking gun. So is the “About” page:
COMPANY NAME has been delivering results since we opened in YEAR. Our goal is to provide both a superior customer experience and tremendous value for our customers.OWNER NAME has over NUMBER years of experience in INDUSTRY NAME and is passionate about exceeding your expectations.
We love our customers and welcome your feedback and suggestions. Use our Contact Us page to tell us what we’re doing right or what we can improve on.
OK: Let’s use the CONTACT US page to let them know that among the things they are doing wrong is stealing NBC’s intellectual property, stealing articles, and making NBC look like it lets third graders run its websites.
Actually, let’s not. I think the site might be a scam to acquire email addresses.
