Is X17 Online a reliable news site?

I don’t think so. Remember when Paris Hilton was released from jail and was reassigned to house arrest, if I remember correctly, X17 reported that Paris had planned to throw a “release” party at her house. But it was just another made-up claim.

X17 reported today that two of Paris’ dogs were eaten by coyotes, but later, one of her reps denied the story and said: “[The story] completely false. [I] do not know how it developed” (Ninemsn).

“They were at Paris’s house Wednesday in her recording studio, and all the dogs were playing and looked as healthy and happy as can be. Paris even had a doggie mansion built for them and it is very secured,” the rep said (People).

Hence why I always got so annoyed by that stupid kid who kept reporting that site said this or that or whatever.

That’s stupid that someone would use animal cruelty to sell stories. I’m glad Paris’ dogs are still alive and well in their mansion 🙂

X17 is one of those sites I avoid because they have the same crazy people posting over and over. It’s probably just one really psychotic person.

That’s what happens when you have a site that is not moderated – it attracts the bottom feeders.
