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

adfontesmedia rates Washington Examiner as being barely acceptable (26.57) in news 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:

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"

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)
