Propagandists at LA Times Share FAKE NEWS Sites to AVOID, You Won’t Believe Who Made the List!

In yet another attempt to silence Conservative Media, a college professor makes a list of FAKE news to avoid. According to the LA Times, the internet was overrun with fake and questionable news and people were actually believing it. Of course most of the sites listed are conservative media that completely slammed Hillary and her crimes. I wonder if they will add Wikileaks at some point.

Once again, we call BS on LIBERAL media and their lies. This is just another concerted effort to stomp out opposing opinions. Not coincidence at all

NY Times had this to say:

During the election, many people fell prey to fake news stories on social media — even the president-elect ended up retweeting fake statistics. A professor of communication has created a list of unreliable news sites to help people do better.

Melissa Zimdars, an assistant professor of communication at Merrimack College in Massachusetts, put together a publicly available Google doc cataloging “False, misleading, clickbait-y and satirical ‘news’ sources.” It’s been making the rounds on social media as people seek to cleanse their newsfeeds of misinformation.

Many of the sites on the list are aggregators – they take news stories from other sources and rewrite them with more inflammatory headlines and without contextual facts.

Breitbart, the “platform for the alt-right” whose chairman was just named Trump’s chief strategist, is on there, as is InfoWars. Alex Jones, who runs InfoWars, said Trump personally called to thank him for helping him win the election.

The list also includes outright satirical sites like The Onion and less well-known ones like Christwire.org and Daily Currant, as well as some of the hyperpartisan Facebook pages notorious for sharing exaggerated, misleading, or outright false news, including Occupy Democrats and Addicting Info. (A BuzzFeed investigation last month found some fake news sites are seeded by Macedonian teenagers looking to make quick money off ads.)
