Reasoning: Extreme Right Wing Bias, Conspiracy, Propaganda, Poor Sourcing, Fake News, Lack of Transparency
This site used to be called freespeech-front.info, but as as of January 24, 2019 is now pointing to the domain thepolitics.online. According to their about page ThePolitics.online is anonymous Blog written by Israelis, this is not a news site. The site presents opinions, thoughts, perspective and personal interpretation of what is happening in our world. The website completely lacks transparency in authors, editors and ownership. While they state they are from Israel, we do not have evidence to prove that.
Funded by / Ownership
The Politics Online does not disclose ownership and the site appears to be funded through advertising.
Analysis / Bias
In review, The Politics Online appears to change their domain name frequently to avoid detection as a fake propaganda news website. The sole purpose of this website is to denigrate Muslims through negative news reporting and loaded headlines such as this: Not a single American flag in sight at US Muslim congresswoman’s Anti-Israel rally in Detroit. There is zero sourcing for this story. Here is another anti-Muslim article: Ben Shapiro humiliating Muslim Congresswomen over their despicable Pro-Hamas agenda against Israel. Again, not a single hyperlink to support their claims. In general, this is a 100% anti-Muslim website that would qualify as a hate group if they had any credibility, which they don’t, based on the reasoning listed above.
A factual search reveals a failed fact check.
