Thousands Believed This Fake New York Times Article About Elizabeth Warren Endorsing Bernie Sanders

via Clone Zone

A Times article reporting Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass) endorsed Bernie Sanders was viewed more than 50,000 times, received 15,000 shares on Facebook, and...it was a hoax.

As the real Times reports, the fraud piece titled, "Warren Endorses Sanders, Breaking with Colleages" first hit the internet on Clone Zone, a super sus web cloning site that allows users to edit content on any website. Via NYT:

"The fake news article, which mimicked The Times’s typefaces and design and included the bylines of two of the newspaper’s political reporters, appeared with the headline “Warren Endorses Sanders, Breaking With Colleagues.”..."An article circulating on social media tonight that is made to resemble a New York Times story and says Elizabeth Warren endorsed Bernie Sanders is a fake and has no connection to The Times,” said Matthew Purdy, a deputy executive editor of The Times.
Ms. Warren has yet to endorse a presidential candidate."

The Clone Zone article has been replaced with a cease and desist notification, issued by NYT. 4-Real, the company behind Clone Zone, denies any involvement with the fake article. (via: NYT)
