This is a great list from Cracked.com that lets you immediately discount sensationalist political trolling articles. It's brilliant and accurate. I think it's a great filter for all ATS members to use before posting a "news" link and there are some members who post nothing but these type of articles.

Quick list of the five signs of bull crap stories (still read the actual article for clarification):


1. The headline contains the word "gaffe".
2. The headline ends in a question mark.
3. The headline contains the work "blasts".
4. The headline is about a "lawmaker" saying something stupid.
5. The headline contains the phrase "blow to".

Well i love cracked but most of their articles are very.... much about the humor angle that 100% proof.

While they claims seem very common sense, this particular article is 99% personnel opinion and to be taken with the largest pinch of salt.

Can you post an article that falls into one of those criteria that isn't pure bs and political trolling?

Without reading the article to see why they think that, I can feel those words are sensational.

It's not really hard.
