Websites that use lying clickbait

I think Taboola, Revcontent and other article distribution services should do a better job of policing the content carried on their services to weed out lying clickbait. But let’s not forget the creators of that bogus content.
I’ve been writing about lying clickbait since May 2016 and I decided today to review the content creators I’ve spotlighted that use the deceptive tactic.
Of the more than 70 websites I’ve noted that use lying clickbait, the worst multiple offenders are Detonate, AllRookie, HistoricalPast, History Things and Historical Insight.
Others on the naughty list include The Brofessional, Lifestylogy, Direct Expose, Curious Historian, HistoryInOrbit, and Groovy History.
Shame on all of you.
