Don’t know if it would be worth it but we each might want to consider commenting on the article to let them know that they are publishing “fake news” (that phrase should’t be reserved just for politics!) They probably won’t care but I might feel better!
It’s all about hits. People who just look at the site are giving their ads ‘impressions’, even if they don’t click the ads and buy anything. Site owners, if they use a system that pays for impressions, make money just by people going to the site. And the best way to do that is to write garbage articles that get people saying ‘wow, have you seen that?’ so that other people will go there.
You know those articles with daft titles that don’t have the content to match when you get there? That.
