How can you tell if Nicolas Cage or "Nicholas Cage" is really dead or not? A death hoax can easily gain momentum online through an RIP page set up on Facebook.com, a silly tweet by one person which can be retweeted hundreds of times, and even a false story written by unreliable news sources.
Here are some tips to discover the truth behind a person's potential death. Mstarz recommends you to first check well-established news sources that have proven over time to report accurately. A reporter might make a mistake but a reliable news source will be quick to admit their mistake and apply the correction.
According to popular vote, many of the top and reliable news sources around include CNN, The New York Times, Fox News, LA Times, Huffington Post, uSA Today, BBC News among others.
Another thing to look out for is to make certain the story is being covered by many new sources before you start to spread the news that someone died.
It is also good to check if there is any other news report on the person. Sometimes a false report may state that the victim died in an accident in location like Switzerland while other news reports state that the he or she was in another part of the country attending a special gala alive and well. There is something fishy of the statements don't match.
Another important thing to do before you believe the story is to check the social websites of the person who is reported dead. If their accounts are still very active and they are posting messages about their latest updates, then there is a high chance that they have become a victim of a death hoax.
After you follow these tips, you will realize that Nicolas Cage is NOT dead. The report on the Global Associated News stated that "Nicholas Cage" died. They had even spelled the name of their victim wrong. Their website is an entertainment website that writes many 100% FAKE stories of celebrity deaths. Based on their stories released, many people begin to spread it on social media websites.
If anything, we recommend for you to spread the TRUTH about Nicolas Cage being alive and well.
