The New York Times has reported that it is being investigated by the FBI over the sale of fake news on its front pages.
The Times said that it was investigating two incidents, including one involving an online fake news website that it has identified as fake news, and one involving a fake news seller.
In the latter case, a person paid for news stories on a fake website and then passed the information along to the Times’ Newsroom to distribute on social media.
The paper said that the seller, who was not identified, used the Times website to spread fake news articles that contained “inaccurate information.”
A spokesperson told The Verge that the newspaper has begun investigating the source of the reported issues.
The Associated Press has reported similar reports about fake news sites, which are widely used by individuals who want to manipulate public opinion.
It’s unclear how widespread the issue is.
