Daily Source Bias Check: Walk With Her

QUESTIONABLE SOURCE

A questionable source exhibits any of the following: extreme bias, overt propaganda, poor or no sourcing to credible information and/or is fake news. Fake News is the deliberate attempt to publish hoaxes and/or disinformation for the purpose of profit or influence. Sources listed in the Questionable Category may be very untrustworthy and should be fact checked on a per article basis. See all Questionable sources.

Bias: Extreme Left

Notes: Walk With Her is a news and opinion website/blog that has an extreme left wing bias and appears to be a Pro-Clinton website from pre-election. First, there isn’t an about page that describes who owns or what the objective of this site is. Second, virtually every headline uses loaded words that are sensationalized to induce clicking (Clickbait). Within the actual articles there is use of loaded words that are often sourced to left wing or questionable sources. Lastly, like most clickbait websites this one features popup ads that make the site difficult to navigate. In the review of articles we found that some stories are true and some are flat out misleading such as: http://walkwithher.com/trumps-latest-fec-disclosure-shows-trump-has-stock-in-company-that-made-bombs-used-in-syria, which both Snopes and this website has declared unproven/verified. Further they a have a Pants on Fire claim from Politifact.
