Politicizing the Truth: The Poynter Institutes List of Supposed “Fake News” Websites




Pictured below are the websites that the Poynter Institute — Facebook’s Fact-Checking affiliate — deemed to be fake news. Be prepared to be shocked by some of the names on this list. They even included Wall Street on Parade, showing beyond any shadow of a doubt how little respect they have for the profession of journalism. What a disgrace.

Due to a vicious public backlash, the list was quickly removed, but it still provides us with a unique window into their mindset nonetheless. Their excuse was to say that their methodology was flawed, but it seems highly unlikely that this disgusting display of media bias comes down to a simple mistake, as Alexios Mantzarlis, one of Poynters top contributors, has been working in the industry since at least 2014.
