The hoax below, which claims that basketball superstar Michael Jordan (MJ) was found dead at his residence, is another reason why you should always use popular and reputable news websites as your source of information. Michael Jeffrey Jordan is NOT DEAD, and is alive and well. The fake stories of Michael Jordan's death are spreading on social media like wildfire, due to the help of fake-news websites that have published the fake stories. Those websites are considered a threat because some persons are taking the fake articles that they have published as authentic news. Therefore, whenever something dramatic or depressing like the death of someone is posted on social networking websites, please verify it with a reputable news website before posting, sharing, commenting or "liking."
