    1. The publisher of the article says a lot of suggestive words like "seemingly" or "might" and "perhaps". All these words are suggesting these articles aren't a 100% true, they aren't 100% false but the publisher is making an inch seem like a mile. And with such a short article and low evidence can this "archaeological find" really be credible? I wonder if he actually knows if its a fraud or he really thinks its the real deal? When Haltman writes,"This is why the words we choose in saying what we see have such far reaching importance." Suggestive words like these make an article seem much more appealing and credible. It is too often we convince ourselves that something we read is 100% percent true just because the way that its written. This can be an incredible gift but when used improperly can lead to dire consequences. Fake news articles use certain words and diction to make seemingly outrageous ideas appear plausible. "Hillary Clinton and pizza child sex ring" is a prime example even leading to a shoot up at the pizza shop all because of one well worded fake article.
