You have probably seen the list of “fake news sites” created by Merrimack College assistant professor Melissa Zimdars that has been making the rounds. But it isn’t a list of “fake news” sites, it is a list of sites that challenge the official narratives put forth by outfits like The New York Times and PBS. At least this is true for many of the sites.
For instance sites like Zerohedge and LewRockwell.com were both on the list which is total nonsense. Indeed some of the best news being done online is being done at Zerohedge and Lew Rockwell.
Noticeably absent are sites like The Huffington Post and Slate and indeed the”mainstream” (not as mainstream as they once were) propaganda mills aren’t listed either. NBC in many respects is all about FAKE NEWS these days. They still trot out Brian Williams for crying out loud. No, the list from the professor is about suppressing ACTUAL news.
Here however is a more accurate list of propagandists.
