Guilty Pleasure

My Web Reporting teacher Katy England informed me about the website http://deceiver.com/

I have decided that this web site is good enough to become a new guilty pleasure.
At first glance, seems like a tacky celebrity gossip website.
But it actually is like a cute looking fact check website.
It shows hypocrisy within celebrity/public figures.
I think that the web site in itself is deceiving; another reason I love it.
It looks like it would be this cutesy tacky superficial celebrity gossip website.
It's much more than that.
And for contributing to the future of journalism, AND CREDIBILITY, it gets my stamp of approval.
Thanks Katy :)
