About this Event

Did a Plane Disappear and Land 37 Years Later? The story of Pan Am flight 914 is often shared by conspiracy-minded websites and UFO blogs. This event involves a plane that took off in 1955 from New York with 57 passengers and reappeared and landed 37 years later in Miami as if nothing had happened. One popular solution offered is that the plane flew through a time-travel portal. However there seems to a lack of credible news accounts concerning this flight's disappearance, as well as no official report stating that this flight went missing in 1955.

Is U.S. Singer, Actress Dolly Parton Paralyzed in the Face? This story was published in a tabloid with a clickbait headline. The 'evidence' used in the article does not stand up to scrutiny, as is the case with many tabloid articles concerning celebrities. Source: snopes.com/fact-check/category/junk-news

Fake news has always been an issue, since centuries ago! From the false rumours spread in the second and third centuries AD claiming that Christians took part in ritual cannibalism and incest to today's false tabloid headlines and fake stories concerning presidential candidates in an effort to discredit them. So how do we spot fake news?
