washingtonexaminer.com – A Font of Political Bias

Post by A440 » Wed May 05, 2021 2:16 pm

The Washington Examiner is a site owned by Clarity Media Group, which is owned by Philip Anschutz, an American billionaire entrepreneur who describes himself as a “conservative Christian.” Anschutz is also the owner of the right-leaning Weekly Standard and has donated millions of dollars to right-leaning causes, including anti-LGBT groups, such as the Family Research Council, which has been labeled a hate group.

This organization is basically a disseminater of political bias and POV instead of being an unbiased source of news information:

Washingtonexaminer.com
They generally report political news as well as local Washington DC news stories. The Washington Examiner frequently utilizes loaded wording in sensationalized headlines such as Trump’s manic Monday amid the Kavanaugh storm. While the headlines may be sensational, articles’ content is written with less bias and tend to be properly sourced to credible media outlets. Editorially, the Washington Examiner is 100% right. It is virtually impossible to find a single editorial that offers some form of balance. Most editorials have anti-left loaded headlines
See: https://mediabiasfactcheck.com/washington-examiner/

adfontesmedia rates Washington Examiner as being barely acceptable (26.57) in news reliability.
See: https://www.adfontesmedia.com/washington-examiner-bias-and-reliability/

The Washington Examiner has also been something of a toxic environment for promoting a right-wing POV, as described in a recent CNN article:
https://edition.cnn.com/2020/02/14/media/washington-examiner-workplace-harassment/index.html

Washington Examiner has also failed numerous fact checks:
The Air Force wants taxpayers to fund a fantasy football league. – FALSE
Ripon College banned a campus group’s display of a poster commemorating 9/11 because “it may offend Muslims.” – MOSTLY FALSE
U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar described America as a ”rotten country.” – FALSE
“Obama’s stimulus, passed in his first month in office, will cost more than the entire Iraq War.” – MOSTLY FALSE

whatfinger.com – The Middle Finger It Is

Post by A440 » Wed May 12, 2021 9:27 am

This is yet another online entity that runs a collection of sites which act as a nexus of disreputable and some reputable news articles for the sake of both biased intent and traffic.

whatfinger.com
whatfinger-videos.b-cdn.net
magazine.whatfinger.com
videos.whatfinger.com

These sites are a part of a network that serves as a nexus of political and medical disinformation, rumour, conspiracy theory, racial discrimination – under the guise of being "unbiased" although their about section clearly identifies the site as being "conservative" and conflates their intent as being "pro-American".
This site and its affiliates host links to highly questionable sources (newsmax, Fox News, Dan Bongino, libertynation.com, various youtube links, etc.) and is not a legitimate source of news information.

These sites link to such articles as:
Covid Was 'An Act Of War' Upon America, Timed To Get China's Puppet Into The White House And Engineered With The Kill Shot And Lock Downs To Complete The Take Down Of Americaallnewspipeline.com
RFK, Jr. and Retired Trauma Surgeon Chat How COVID Cases Are Classified, Vaccine Shedding and More from the noted vaccine disinformation site "childrenshealthdefense.org"
See: https://www.factcheck.org/2021/05/scicheck-covid-19-vaccines-spike-protein-only-get-into-those-who-receive-it-no-shedding/

Man has leg amputated due to the AstraZeneca COVID Vaccine dailyexpose.co.uk – FALSE
See: https://www.stamfordmercury.co.uk/news/man-lost-leg-weeks-after-covid-vaccination-9198171/
You get the idea – low on fact, high on fiction and bias.

WhatRegistrater.com – Fake Fox News Site

Post by A440 » Sat Jun 12, 2021 10:51 am

This site is an imposter site, done up to look like Fox News (this is very ironic too, considering Fox).

WhatRegistrater.com
WhatRegistrater.com currently consists of one page that mirrors the Fox News website. Here they publish a fake article claimed to be written by Britt Hume that promotes CDB oil. The article claims that pastor Charles Stanley is endorsing and starting a CBD business (Stanley denies this)

republicandaily.net — Another political disinformation site

Post by A440 » Tue Jul 13, 2021 12:25 pm

This site exhibits one or more of the following: extreme bias, consistent promotion of propaganda/conspiracies, poor or no sourcing to credible information, a complete lack of transparency, and/or is fake news. Fake News is the deliberate attempt to publish hoaxes and/or disinformation for profit or political influence. This is basically a hyper-partisan site that masquerades as a news site.

republicandaily.net
Republican Daily does not appear to publish original news stories. Every article reviewed was republished from the far-right questionable source Trending Politics. Trending Politics also features the writing of Kyle Becker, who has a poor track record with fact-checkers.
See: www.mywot.com/scorecard/beckernews.com
https://mediabiasfactcheck.com/republican-daily-bias/
This site promotes Covid-19 conspiracy theories such as: Chinese Scientist Filed COVID Vaccine Patent in February of 2020, Then Mysteriously Died. While Republican Daily/Trending Politics quotes other sources in the article, they draw conclusions that are not a part of the quotes. In the above article, they lead one to believe the Chinese Scientist may have been murdered or that it proves that the Chinese Military was connected to the Wuhan Lab.

This site also promotes election conspiracy theories by heavily insinuating there is fraud yet to be uncovered: Trump: ‘I Never Admitted Defeat’, Says It’s Up to ‘Public’ to Reinstate Him If Audits Uncover Enough Fraud. This article uses gossip and rumour in an attempt to discredit the 2020 election. See: https://www.factcheck.org/2020/12/nine-election-fraud-claims-none-credible/

This site promotes false information about COVID vaccinations as well: CNN Analyst Says Life Needs To Be “Hard” For Unvaccinated Citizens; Here’s What We Know…. This article promotes the false notion that any COVID vaccine is "experimental". They are not.

Americanthinker.com – Addendum 03

Post by A440 » Wed Jul 21, 2021 1:21 pm

Americanthinker.com has yet again descended into presenting rumour as factual evidence in a recent attempt to claim fraud in the 2020 election quoting both Donald Trump and Epochtimes — both of which have serious problems with facts and truth:

newswithviews.com — It has a bit of everything that's bad

Post by A440 » Fri Jul 23, 2021 9:57 am

This site is so low in quality that its home page looks like a prank site. This site embodies extreme bias, consistent promotion of propaganda/conspiracies, poor or no sourcing to credible information, a complete lack of transparency and/or is fake news.

newswithviews.com
News with Views mostly publishes opinion commentary framed around news stories and events. Articles and headlines often contain loaded emotional headlines such as: Slippery Kamala Harris loses big to Vice President Pence. This obvious opinion piece is not sourced at all and concludes with this emotional opinion “The left is ashamed of America, resents it, lies about our history, and plans to ‘kill us softly.’ “Under Joe Biden and Kamala Harris’s leadership, America will become a Godless, hollow and ashamed shell of itself, full of danger, high taxation, immorality, riots and voided freedoms. Vote for America, God, and freedom. Vote for Donald Trump and Mike Pence.” There is not much to say about the bias of this website and the lack of sourcing speaks volumes about their veracity to facts.
See: https://mediabiasfactcheck.com/news-with-views/

This site falsely promotes the idea that the COVID vaccine is "experimental", claiming:
If you have already voluntarily submitted your body to the human experiment that Joe Biden is peddling as a vaccine, I pray and sincerely hope that it goes well for you.
See: https://www.reuters.com/article/factcheck-covid-vaccines-idUSL1N2M70MW

The site furthermore alleges that Americans are "being lied to by “science” and “media” regarding the virus and the so-called vaccines", claiming that Americans have "willingly kowtowed to the government propaganda of fear, masks and lockdowns" and that "A worldwide Genocide is unfolding" due to COVID vaccines .
See: https://vaxopedia.org

This site has additionally failed fact checks:
Do illegal immigrants cost $338.3 billion dollars a year? More than the Iraq war? – False
Three Sheriff’s Deputies Beheaded Near the Border in San Diego County, California – Fiction
This site further promotes anti-science positions regarding climate change and anything else under the sun.
