They take some statistics then make it sound awful!  So, above the headline is HUNDREDS OF PRISON STAFF SMUGGLING STUFF IN TO JAILS.
My natural inclination is to think "Wow, hundreds in the last six months or year!"  But no, it's 341 in the last 6 years!

I do hate it when websites do this sort of thing.  FAKE NEWS!  Ahhh!

It's all about sensationalism and click bait.

Exactly.  Very annoying.

I do not read news online. On occasion I watch the local news and stay away from any Network News although I like Charles Gibson on ABC but it has been so long since I watched I don't even know if he is still on there or not.

CNN, Yahoo, MSNBC, CBS, and ABC have all been busted for manufacturing news and twisting details.  Fox probably does, but you won't hear most conservatives fuss about it when it backs their views.

Actually, there's nothing fake about it.  Hundreds (300+) of prison personnel have been caught bringing contraband into a jail.  They did not mention a timeframe in the title.

So no need to be paranoid . . . unless you want to be  Headbang

Yeah, that was my point too.  It's not fake, it's sensationalized.  The news sites make money either through subscription or ads and their ad money comes from people clicking on stories.  In this case, it worked.

Yeah alldat, quality journalism has given way to ratings and being the first with a story, so many major outlets (including Fox) have fabricated details if not whole stories.

I have more and more trouble trusting headlines. It takes multiple reports on the same subject to get an idea of what's actually going on. I refuse to click on clickbait, unless there's a good reason to.

Normally I only read the local paper and watch the local news. No talking heads for me although Robin Meade is easy on the eyes on Headline News.

I appreciate the folks on FB who take the time to read the article and then post in the comments what the actual story was.
