A Comprehensive Breakdown Of Fake News Sites

26
604

The below diagram has been compiled by a team of media professors and top journalists, showing where each news site falls on the spectrum of integrity and complexity. News organizations far left and far right of center can be safely ignored as fake news. The rest are trustworthy and non-partisan, and any one of them is recommended, depending on your level of sophistication. Enjoy!

I’m glad I can trust this source! Thank you. My world was crumbling. One question: if Russia controls right news who controls left?

Russia controls both. Pretty much all fake news can be traced back to the Kremlin, and the fake news that can’t is written by useful idiots.

Take your Russian propaganda back to St. Petersburg! We support the heroic Sunni freedom fighters against Assad and the Shiite blasphemers! We’re with Obama!

Would be nicer to have a larger picture, for partially photonically non-receptive people. Other than that, a FANTASTIC diagram that instantly allows us to choose accredited media! No thinking required!

Duly noted. I’ve added a link to a larger image. This diagram demonstrates that you can safely dismiss everything from certain websites, and pretty much trust everything from others. That’s how you should decipher what is true and false – by the brand name of the news organization, not the content of the article.

What a fantastic resource MDB. I imagine that the Washington Post would be very interested in publishing this if you were to decide to share it with them.

I notice that Accredited Times was rated the most complex news medium, and it was also rated mainstream. That’s what I would have expected. Regarding the complexity, I find that I can meditate for an hour or two on any AT article. I didn’t see Zero Hedge. I guess they weren’t important enough to get on the chart.

Black Lives Matter

Come on, the Huffington Post and MSNBC are as “middle of the road” as it gets. And Faux News is utter garbage.

This was compiled by a group of top media professors – I don’t know what their methodology was but for some reason Faux News was given some credibility. I guess since they at least admit to some extent that Russia hacked our elections, and they supported our humanitarian interventions in the Middle East, so in that regard they’re better than some of these other fake news sites.

Black Lives Matter

I guess they do have Bill Kristol and Megyn Kelly. Kristol’s analysis on foreign policy is always dead-on accurate, and he did oppose Trump. Kelly was also generally fair on her coverage of Trump.

I am glad to see Accredited Times at the top of the list.

And what else *should* you expect from something that has “Accredited” in its name? Look if this stuff weren’t accredited, do you think we’d be allowed by the internet police to use it in the name??!!? CHECK YOUR PRIVILEGE

Exactly – the AT hasn’t received any criticism from the rest of the accredited media, and has been spared from every fake news list.

Hahahahahahahaha, oh wow. What a good laugh.

On second thought check out some of my other posts (other articles) qnd I think you might gains some understanding.

In just a few years, Accredited Times has reached the pinnacle of journalism. Good job! Should prevent fake news and propaganda sources from doing a similar cut-and-paste of their name.

Mr. TrueDat, I notice that the accredited authors and commenters often fail to measure up to your standards. Did you know that you can submit your own article to Accredited Times?

I found this cartoon (http://www.zerohedge.com/sites/default/files/images/user3303/imageroot/2016/12/16/20161218_hillary.jpg) on a fake news sight. It is a great example of the subversive mind games played by Russian propagandists. When I read the cartoon, I got furious because there is no choice for all of the above, but that’s exactly what they want progressives to think. The real mind trick is that HILLARY DIDN’T LOSE!!! They are attempting to trick progressives into engaging in arguments about WHY Hillary lost to support their false narrative that Trump won the election.

Thanks, Alexander. I would have probably been fooled by their tricks. By the way, the cartoon is bracketed by 6 red Y’s by PropOrNot (even on this AT web page.)

Can wait for 4 years of fake news of Trump in white house. With your help maybe we can make it 8.
