Not news

The following websites do not count as actual news sources. No, I didn’t link to them. Google them if you need to. Yes, there are too many bad news sites to list, but the point is that a lot of people seem to use these sources more often when trying to support some rather dubious claims. Some of them are blatant clickbait. Others are conspiracy spinning loon bins. Some are lefty confirmation-bias bubbles and others are “alt-right” astroturf. Anyhow, if I’m not paying attention to you, it could be because you rely on one or more of the below sites (or others like them) a tidge too much.

Originally, this started, based on the list in this Pathos blog post. That’s a good start, but I added a few more. This list is different than the propornot site, which is highly problematic. I’m not alleging that all these sites are involved in some joined-up, mass conspiracy to spread Russian propaganda. That thesis itself is pretty specious. I’m just saying these are some dodgy sources trying to pass themselves off as news, thanks to their own unique efforts.
