The internet does not lie the people on it do. The best way to avoid sites that have faulty info is to look at the URL and see if at the end there is a .gov or .edu. If there is most likely the info there is refutable and has research and studies to back it up. The . gov stands for government and the .edu stands for educational. So basically most sites other then Wikipedia. At my school if you try to use research done from Wikipedia you get an F on the assignment even if the info is correct because it’s not a valid website.

This depends on where you are looking for your answers. Some pages give the public the authority to write all their opinions and that is why you can get wrong information. However, there are professional sites that give correct information about a certain subject.
Because, there are people in this world who think that they know absolutely everything. These people go around on the internet saying what they think is correct but its actually incorrect. When someone see's what they said and they think its true they remember what they said as right. Then it spreads all around the internet. This is what happens on most occasions on the internet.
