Belleville News-Democrat: New tactic by politicians: Set up fake news websites as a campaign gambit. “Despite complaints from Congress about the Russian meddling in the 2016 campaign that included ‘fake news’ sites designed to sway voters, at least three members of Congress seeking re-election have posted similar sites designed to help them win re-election. Three sitting senators fighting tough re-election campaigns as well as at least one House member, have created sites that masquerade as internet news pages.”
