Beware These 20 Fake News Sites

Monday, November 21, 2016 14:03

(Before It's News)

--As you may’ve heard, there’s a digital witchhunt being waged against “fake” news on the Interwebs. Since everyone else is doing it, we thought we’d release our hounds and let you know who the most heinous offenders are.

Most people who use social media have figured out that Facebook and Google are in cahoots with the government, for those who are well aware of the issues it’s high time you switched over to Seen.life. It is a website that is similar to Facebook but without all the censorship.

We’ll show you the full list of the top-20 (yes, twenty!) fake news websites in just one moment. This list might not be what you expect. (Or, heck, it might be exactly what you’re expecting.)

And, no, it isn’t the list published recently by Melissa Zimdars, an assistant professor of communication at Merrimack College in Massachusetts. Zimdars released the list below to her class on a Google Doc entitled, “False, misleading, clickbait-y and satirical ‘news’ sources.”

And then… it went viral.

To be fair, many of the sites in the list below are indeed “clickbait-y.” And some of them are, indeed, over-the-top and relentlessly sensationalist. But what it really comes down to, of course, is a noticeable slant…

List Pt1

List Pt2

List Pt3

Not one of these websites above, though, as far as we know, is responsible for spreading false news with disastrous consequences. None wield their power as irresponsibly as the true fake news websites — the only websites worthy of such scrutiny.

But before we line up the verminous vagrants for you, here’s a message from the head of America’s new self-proclaimed Ministry of Truth, our dear shining beacon in the dark caves and caverns of mis- and disinformation…

His royal pie-in-the-skyness…

Mark “the Doof of Truth” Zuckerberg.

Mark Zuckerberg

Fear not, plebs. Zucky will protect you from the big bad beguilers…

“The bottom line is,” Zuckerberg boomed last week, his voice echoing throughout the hallowed halls of the infosphere, “we take misinformation seriously. Our goal is to connect people with the stories they find most meaningful, and we know people want accurate information. We’ve been working on this problem for a long time and we take this responsibility seriously. We’ve made significant progress, but there is more work to be done.”

And, according to a Facebook friend, the Great Work has already begun…

Facebook Post

Of course, Facebook has been caught over and over arbitrarily censoring posts. And, guess what? This might not be a popular opinion, but Facebook has every right to censor whoever they want. 

That’s right.

Jokes aside, in truth, Facebook, as a private company, has every right to censor whoever and whatever, whenever they want. There’s no law in place to keep them from doing so, nor should there be. But by not being a neutral platform, the data plantation will censor their customers at their own peril and turn into an echo chamber as people move on to greener pastures.

Zuck’s stuck between a rock and a hard thing by engaging in this “fake news” narrative. He’ll be forced to only censor alt-media, which makes up a good chunk of America’s media consumption these days. You’d be hard-pressed to see him dare start censoring the “credibles.”

Yet, America is waking up to the fact that the mainstream press does little more than parrot what they’re told. It’s no secret that the mainstream media is now a monolith of just six colluding corporations which serve their corporate/government masters first, with truth as a mere afterthought.

Though we don’t always agree with Noam Chomsky, he hits the nail on the head when he talks about the mainstream media’s role in society: “The media serve, and propagandize on behalf of, the powerful societal interests that control and finance them. The representatives of these interests have important agendas and principles that they want to advance, and they are well positioned to shape and constrain media policy.”

With that said, here’s the REAL list of fake news websites down below.

“This list,” Chris Rossini reports on the Ron Paul Liberty Report, “contains the culprits who told us that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction and lied us into multiple bogus wars. These are the news sources that told us ‘if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor.’ They told us that Hillary Clinton had a 98% of winning the election. They tell us in a never-ending loop that ‘The economy is in great shape!’”

There are certainly more, and yes, this list reveals a noticeable slant, too. But if we’re talking about news websites which have been shown (thanks to WikiLeaks) to put political interests over truth, it’s a good start.

Whatever you do, be very wary of what these fake news sites publish. They’ve been caught red-handed violating the (albeit flawed) sacred Journalist’s Creed, set in ink by the (very) late Walter Williams over a century ago.

Here they are…

  • Umm red state is nothing more than a never trump website, in fact they would prefer people voted for hillary! Put them with the rest of the lying scumbags in the so called msm! The same goes for the blaze!

    Never been a fan of infowars/ alex jones..

  • Censorship is more dangerous than fake news.

    • Bravo, my friend. One up for that timeless but oh so accurate statement.

  • More seen.life BS. Enough of this crap already. Your information is not safe here. Please do your research.

    Another retarded social media platform that will never get the following to be successful. The CEO of seen.is, unseen.is, seen.life, unseen.life…etc, is Chris Kitze, the same man that is on the board or directors for Intelius (now know as Inome). If you haven’t heard of them, its the same Intelius that has numerous class action lawsuits facing it for …wait for it….automatically enrolling consumers into partner marketing programs, deceptive credit card charges, and post-transaction marketing scams. Go look it up yourself.

    This same Chris Kitze, if you look at his linkedin profile, has top skills in E-commerce, Online Advertising, and Marketing. Ya, you really think this man is looking out for your personal data? Its all about the money for them. And to top it off, the people behind BIN, along with Kitze, use scare tactics and fear porn to drive users to Seen.life, which they also run. Hrmmm….

    No, I’m not a facebook fanboy, nor do I use it much at all, but the incessant pushing of seen.is/life is questionable

    I mean ffs people, just read their privacy info:
    “Service Providers. We may employ third party companies and individuals to facilitate our services, to provide our services on our behalf… These third parties have access to your Personal Information.”

    and there’s more…

    “We will disclose any information about you to government or law enforcement officials or private parties as we believe necessary or appropriate to respond to claims and legal process…etc.”

    • Well stated, and pretty damning, I’d say. I too read the fine print on Unseen that basically states that “your information is 100% safe unless we decide it isn’t.”
      That whole “social media” thing is BS. I can’t understand why anyone would want their whole life to revolve around ONE website. I’ve never had a BookFace account because I don’t need it. If I want to talk to somebody I can Skype them. If I want to send them a longer text I’ll use e-mail. If I want news, I’ll go to Drudge, if I want to put up one of my videos, I’ll put it up on my server in Florida.
      I also never understood the point of Twytter. You’re limited to I believe 160 characters so what are you gonna write? “I’m taking a dump now.”
      Some people have said I should have my own blog, and I’m like what the hell for? Who reads those things anyway. And what am I gonna write about, how the migrant crisis is getting worse and worse by the day here? Everybody knows that already. How Germany’s become a cesspool of crime and corruption? Or about how me and my girlfriend went shopping for groceries? Yeah, I’m sure there’s BILLIONS of people that want to hear about that.
      The other thing about BookFace is that you have to use your real name. So, what do you do if you’re like a whistleblower? Or you’re like me and you live in Germany, where you can’t say anything “insulting” about the migrants without being arrested?
      I’m actually grateful for websites like BIN because I can talk openly about what’s happening here without facing a trip down to the station for it.

      • Man

        yes and artist alwways use their real name on facebook….. katy perry is a stage name..

    • The fact of the matter is that there are likely no social media sites that truly protect privacy. Some just have better window dressing than others, but in reality they’re all subject to surveillance.

  • They obviously didn’t get all the alternative news sites. Rense isn’t on that list, neither is SOTT. But ZeroHedge? That’s a pretty mainstream financial site, I’d say. Besides who the hell made the decision to include or exclude websites for that list? Isn’t censorship 100x worse than “fake news?”
    Sure, you have questionable articles on BIN as well, but the people who write them are well known for that, and I won’t mention any names. But if somebody genuinely believes that what they’re writing is true, even if they’re completely delusional, that doesn’t mean they’re lying. They’re just telling the truth the way they see it. It’s like eyewitness testimony. If you have 3 witnesses, you’re gonna get 3 slightly skewed accounts of what happened because each person concentrates on different details of the event. It’s like the analogy of the 5 blind people and the elephant. Each one of them is both correct and wrong at the same time.

  • GRR

    I would add http://www.linkedin.com which published nothing good about Donald Trump’s presidency bid (before and after the election results) and seemed keen to suppress anything positive about his election and the election.

    • I can’t understand why every single mainstream site is so against Trump. I voted for him. I drove the 200+ miles to the American Embassy to do so even though I just knew he would win. I mean, Trump is basically pro-business, so why are all these BUSINESSES against him? Makes no sense!

  • Man

    It is nice to see that BIN is mentioned in the list

    • That’s what I was thinking too. There was another article on here posted roughly a week or so ago that listed ten sites and they didn’t list BIN—which should’ve been toward the top of the list.

      • Man

        these fake news lists are fake anyway… unless the only news sites are american owned

  • Phd

    Ah! Fake Websites…..

    There Are Thousands of them , every government in the world has them….
    The New World Order 666 Have Them…..

    The DIS-UNITED-STATES with Google, FEMA, FACEBOOK and DARPA are specialists at this…..

    THEY WANT TO ARREST AND OR KILL YOU BEFORE YOU COMMIT A CRIME…..

    BEFORE ITS NEWS ARE THE BIGGEST BULLSHIT SPECIALISTS HERE….

  • On Seen.life on forehand in a hidden way one particular group is excluded from been critisized. Strange? And sometimes when I open up Seen.life I am confrontated with my former facebook site. Scarry! Safe? I’m afraid not safe at all. That makes me using seen.life as little as possible. I got back to the slower but safer use of simple Emails.

  • Fake news as in NBC, CBS, ABC, CNN, PBS… and yes, FOX! Minitrue (Minustry of Truth) and “Nineteen Eighty-Four” is alive and well.

  • Man

    there needs to be a standard or certification to either news sites or journalists. That is a better just pointing fingers by people since that doesn’t deal with confirmation bias.

    And unfortunately ALT news are good at being echochambers but not really fact checked other than often: “I received an email from an anonymous FBI agent that SHTF”

    anyone want some more non news pizzagate?

  • They’re isn’t an Alternative Media its all the same as the MSM and all connected, one recommending the other or using a story from one website to another website, BIN even makes up stories or pushes stories from website’s that been up for a day or two

    Most if not all in the so called Alternative Media are fake Jews [ Synagogue of Satan Jews, just like the MSM ]

    This is not a people powered website as it claims and it does not allow just anyone to post articles, its all just a lie

    How many articles have you done on Chemtrails and Bioengineering, Freedom Bunker?

    How many articles on Chemtrails Worldwide and Bioengineering on Alternative Websites?

    I guess you are all looking forward to Trans-humanism, wanting to be like some walking talking Android with some computer programmer as you’re God

    Constitutionalist is the same as Idolatry so you worship Men who separated God from State, how’s that working out?

    Money, Corruption and Influence, no one going to prison who should, no one being hung who should, Judges all corrupt, Politicians all corrupt, Police all corrupt, Military all corrupt guarding poppy fields, CIA, NSA, FBI, DHS, FEMA, USDA you name it all corrupt, Alternative Medicine blocked, Alternative power sources blocked, Water powered cars blocked, Exploring Antarctica blocked, you can’t even explore The Grand Canyon

    • Phd

      Sean ~ 11/10 and a gold star Boet…

      So nice to find someone on the same wave length.

      Wot can l say ~ Destiny is what it is and no denying it.
      Interesting times we live in and its gonna get a lot more interesting.
      Just a sad pity about the misery and suffering mankind still has to go through…..

  • raburgeson

    Just made a new screen saver out of these 2 charts for thanksgiving. Thanks for them!!!

  • Correct me if i’m wrong but none from that list was yelling about the “weapons of mass destruction” excuse for invading Iraq were they?

    So the real fakers get let off scott free huh!
