This is yet another Mike Adams (natural news) right-wing conspiracy and pseudoscience website that routinely publishes false information.

science.news
Besides promoting pseudoscience, Science.News is an extreme right-wing biased source that frequently promotes false or misleading information regarding vaccines, alternative health, and government conspiracies. For more information read our review on Natural News.

bitchute.com

This site is:
. . . a low-rent YouTube clone that carries an array of hate-fueled material, including white nationalist podcasts, propaganda linked to a murderous neo-Nazi group and a parody song called “N—– Babies,” which chortles at the idea of slaughtering and then eating black infants.” Further, during the Coronavirus pandemic, they have frequently published disinformation such as the banned video Plandemic that was riddled with false claims. In general, this a website that offers disinformation and offensive content. Put another way, it is the 4-Chan or 8-Chan of video. It is not credible on any level.

Can user ratings still override the new patented "Machine Learning" feature?

Also, BitChute might be worthy of its own thread considering its highly abusive nature.

That would be yet another reason to rate this site poorly.

Judging from what I read of their "community guidelines", if no one complains, it stays up, thus this site is apparently a 4-chan, 8-chan-style site and should definitely be rated "0". The security certificate for their community guidelines is also invalid!

When I go to their link for "Prohibited Content", it simply recycles the same page for community guidelines, meaning they don't define just what is "prohibited" and what isn't. This is incredibly dodgy!

This site is a surrogate of Alex Jones's infowar.com – an infamously renowned site of conspiracy and disinformation.

banned.video
Despite being summarily de-platformed by several major social media websites in recent years, Infowars, the far-right conspiracy website owned by radio host Alex Jones, successfully resurrected itself on social media under the name Banned.Video until it was taken down yet again by Twitter on April 16, 2020.

This site is basically a German conspiracy site that promotes the false notion that the German Government is not legitimate.

staatenlos.info
The Reichsbürger movement is part of the far right. The movement espouses conspiracy theories, antisemitism, and racism. The movement has been described as neo-Nazi in character, although The Economist reported in 2016 that Reichsbürger adherents "draw ridicule even from neo-Nazis." The Reichsbürger movement is characterized by a rejection of the modern Federal Republic of Germany; denial of its legality and legitimacy; and denial of the authority of the federal, state, and local governments in Germany. Reichsbürger followers believe that the German Empire borders of 1937 or 1871 borders still exist and that the modern Federal Republic of Germany is "an administrative construct still occupied by the Allied powers."
These loons actually sent letters to the American and Russian embassies, in Berlin, asking them to liberate German from the current government. They consider Donald Trump to be their "liberator" and ally in their struggle.

The "Machine Learning" should perhaps look into the WHOIS and deduct points for (a) dodgy registrars and (b) Cloudflare on the IP.

Yes, absolutely. "Machine learning" should keep up with the times.

This site is a hard right factional site and a source of rumour, heavily biased political disinformation, and conspiracy.
It links to known discredited sources, i.e., naturalnews.com, redstate.com and commonly targets a so called "Obama Marxist Liberal agenda" meaning anything that does not pass a hard right litmus test is very bad.
