Email correspondence between Zebra Fact Check and the Raw Story corrections team on January 3, 2017 :
Dear RawStory corrections team,
Trump supporters far more likely to read and share ‘fake news’ on social media: study
Story (bold emphasis added):
They’re still measuring the degree to which fake news impacted the 2016 election, however, this study only measured how often stories were read, not whether they were believed or spread.
Additional Twitter outreach to story author Sarah Burris (verified account):
@SarahBurris, your article on @BrendanNyhan‘s research appears to contradict the headline @RawStory used for it (“read and share”). Contacted corrections yesterday, no fix. Maybe you can do something about it?https://t.co/Q5LRMUoYFJ
