Njuz.net is a satirical site from Serbia, which publishes fictional news. It was founded in 2010 following the example of the US The Onion. For a short time, it became very popular in the country and in the region, mostly because of the numeber of “serious” media who have published their news as genuine. The general public has heard of this site when they announced the news of a drunken Serb who was killed by a shark in Egypt. The story went viral after a short time, on almost all continents and on several dozen of editorials who believed in the veracity of this event.
