This organization actively promotes anti-vaccination pseudoscience and currently has allied itself with anti-mask groups in Canada.

vaccinechoicecanada.com

As from (www.cbc.ca/news/health/coronavirus-charter-challenge-1.5680988):
(As quoted in the article as a part of this lawsuit): VCC claimed that: ". . . Researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology report the development of a novel way to record a patient's vaccination history by using smartphone-readable nano crystals called 'quantum dots,' embedded in the skin using micro-needles (see: quantum dot tattoo conspiracy [https://www.reuters.com/article/uk-factcheck-coronavirus-bill-gates-micr-idUSKBN21I3EC]). In short, a vaccine chip embedded in the body. This work and research are funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation," the lawsuit said.
The statement of claim includes a timeline that begins in the year 2000 when Bill Gates steps down as the head of Microsoft to start the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. It also states Gates expects a "'twenty-fold' return on his $10 billion vaccine investment within the next few decades."
Included in the timeline are references to the Chinese military, 5G networks, international vaccine programs and the Rockefeller Foundation as relevant to the creation and spread of the coronavirus, but the lawsuit isn't clear on how."
Additionally, this organization is teaming up with anti-mask groups. "Mistrust of government and scientific authorities are key characteristics among both anti-vaccination and anti-masking advocates". See: www.rcinet.ca/en/2020/07/27/anti-maskers-teaming-up-with-anti-vaxers-cbc-report/

This site and organization promotes conspiracy theories and pseudoscience at the expense of the public.

washingtonspectator.org

Post by A440 » Wed Sep 30, 2020 8:16 am

Instead of posting the usual problem site, this site is a decent source of news information though is surprisingly under rated here on WOT.

washingtonspectator.org
. . . the print edition of the Washington Spectator, generally in “every issue covers a single topic—most often, one that its editors believe is not receiving sufficient coverage in the mainstream media outlets.” The website publishes articles related to politics, world, culture, and economy. Articles and headlines utilize strongly loaded language that favors a left-leaning perspective such as this Anatomy of Deceit: Team Trump Deploys Doctors with Dubious Qualifications to Push Fake Cure for Covid-19. This story, like most, is thoroughly sourced to credible media outlets such as Politifact, New York Times, and the CDC.

naebc.org

Post by A440 » Fri Oct 02, 2020 8:10 am

This organization has been exposed as being an asset of the Russian state disinformation effort that has been directed towards other countries' elections, namely America, by attempting to influence elections by the use of disinformation and heavily biased content.

naebc.org
The Russian group accused of meddling in the 2016 U.S. election has posed as an independent news outlet to target right-wing social media users ahead of this year’s vote, two people familiar with an FBI probe into the activity told Reuters.
The latest operation centred around a pseudo media organisation called the Newsroom for American and European Based Citizens (NAEBC), which was run by people associated with the St. Petersburg-based Internet Research Agency, the sources said.
U.S. prosecutors say the agency played a key role in Russian efforts to sway the 2016 election in favour of President Donald Trump, and Facebook and Twitter exposed a fake left-wing media outlet in September which they said was run by people connected to the organisation.

This site is another under rated but good site for information regarding the state of affairs in American politics.
They are as neutral as an organization can be and have failed no fact checks.
Surprisingly, this site has run afoul of the notorius "GURBL" WOT rater and is woefully out of date:

kelseycoalition.org

Post by A440 » Fri Oct 02, 2020 1:28 pm

This site and organization is an anti-transgender site that promotes pseudoscience and false allegations about transgender issues:

kelseycoalition.org
The Kelsey Coalition claims to be “a non-partisan organization whose mission is to promote policies and laws that protect young people from medical and psychological harm.” It was launched in March and is made up of parents who claim their “transgender-identifying children have been harmed by physicians, therapists, and clinics throughout the US.” (however) Very little information about the Kelsey Coalition is readily available to the public (no transparency).
The group’s website does not include information about its permanent staff and is scant on detail related to the group’s incorporation or tax status. However, the website does solicit anonymous anti-trans personal testimonies from parents, feature online petitions that anti-trans parents can sign, and provide resources aimed at helping anti-trans parents lobby elected officials.
Despite claims of representing “hundreds of parents,” a review of its content and mentions of the group elsewhere showed only six public-facing members. Three are anonymous parents identified by the names Bill, Elaine, and Crystal. The other three include founder Katherine Cave, anti-trans endocrinologist Michael Laidlaw, and Keck, the author of the USA Today op-ed.

nationalfile.com

Post by A440 » Sat Oct 03, 2020 3:36 pm

This site is yet another right-wing political disinformation site, dressed up as if it is a legitimate news site, which it is not.

nationalfile.com
National File is a conspiracy and pseudoscience website that reports from a conservative perspective. According to their about page: “National File is a bold new media project focused on hard news regarding cultural movements, political issues, the tech industry, and other topics pertaining to the New Right. Our team includes distinguished journalists with previous experience at Breitbart, The Daily Caller, Free Beacon, The Gateway Pundit, GameRanx, One Angry Gamer, and Big League Politics.
additionally:
National File publishes conspiracy and pseudoscience related news stories from an extreme right perspective. Articles frequently use loaded emotional language such as this: Biden Slammed By The Left As An Attempted Social Security-Cutter. This story is sourced to the Questionable Breitbart as well as the credible Politico. The website also features a section dedicated to immigration that routinely portrays immigrants negatively such as this: FLASHBACK: Swedish Boy Beaten by Migrant for Having Blue Eyes. In general, National File takes a strong white nationalist anti-immigration position through negative portrayal of immigrants and/or Muslims as criminals or dangerous such as this: UK: Pedophile Rape Gang Left to Roam Streets, Police Knew, Did Nothing About it.
National File frequently publishes conspiracies such as the Clintons being involved in human sex trafficking to World Trade Center conspiracies, implying that the towers were taken down by controlled demolition

A good source for checking

Post by A440 » Mon Oct 05, 2020 5:20 am

This site offers a listing of sites which peddle political disinformation for the purpose of promoting a political party or opinion, thus are not legitimate sources of news information:

Mind you, some of the sites listed herein may be parked or retired due to the ever changing nature of media firms which promote political disinformation nowadays.

This is yet another dystopian conspiracy site that promotes political disinformation:

darkoutpost.com
This site promotes bogus home remedies for COVID (Home Recipe For Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ)), as well as topics such a: Doomsday Planes Activated, Are Ten Days Of Darkness About To Unfold?, And Just Like That, UFO ‘Crash Retrievals’ Are Now Mainstream and What The Devil? Hillary Clinton Has Sexually Explicit Book Of Satanic Glass Porn
If so many people were not gulible, this sort of rot would be laughable.
