Fake News Sites Perpetuate Myth That Obama Tapped Trump’s Phones
By Steve Neavling
President Trump’s claims that Obama wiretapped the Republican’s phones during the presidential “have proven to be a petri dish for fake news,” Politifact has found.
Multiple fake news sites have posted stories alleging that the FBI has a warrant to arrest Obama for wiretapping Trump’s phones.
Politifact concluded: “These stories don’t have a grain of truth. There’s no warrant out for Obama’s arrest, and he’s definitely not getting arrested by the FBI. We’ve also found no evidence to support Trump’s claim that the wiretapping even took place.”
Fake news has contributed to confusion, resentment and anger among people who have trouble discerning real news from fictional news.
