Big Media Clickbait

Fox News Home Page has a pic of some RV's parked by a lake (clearly European RV's, not US) and the caption under the pic is "RV Camping Dangerous?"

And I followed the link to the article, also a FoxNews Travel article (not third party), and the article is titled "RV camping trips: What you absolutely need to know", and its just a bunch of neat stuff about the RV industry and stats on how RV'ing has increased in the past ten years and such. Nothing special.

Charles, surely you are not implying that "Big Media Click Bait" is the sole province of Fox News. Otherwise you would be engaging in political advocacy which is to be avoided at iRV2.

All news media outlets are corrupt they bait you with a headline and provide a story that has no real information. I don't remember the specifics but I had one yesterday that the headline said one thing and the first line in the story said the exact opposite.

Clickbait is not uncommon, but usually the smaller, off the wall websites are the ones most guilty. Its not just Fox, but using RV's for clickbait seemed kinda funny. Indeed, the article, if you can call it that, is just a bunch of tidbits of information, some accurate, some not so, and some stock pics, that are generally useless.
