Better Read That Again: Web Hoaxes and Misinformation.
Piper, Paul S.
Searcher, v8 n8 p40-49 Sep 2000
Discussion of misinformation on the Internet focuses on counterfeit Web sites that are malicious in nature, as opposed to parody or spoof sites. Highlights include subject-specific information, including science and health information and business information; the need for Web literacy; and sites that are dedicated to tracking hoaxes. (LRW)
