Among the many articles recently about the proliferation of fake news, a few have touched on the use (or misuse) of URLs to fool people.

 For example, this story claims that a unicode character was swapped to make people think google was supporting a particular US candidate in the recent election:

http://mashable.com/2016/11/21/fake-google-domain/#C87rdUV2IaqL <http://mashable.com/2016/11/21/fake-google-domain/#C87rdUV2IaqL>

Are any of you following this angle?
