Bias: Extreme Right, Propaganda
Notes: Banned Information is a news and opinion blog that has an extreme right wing bias in reporting. All stories favor the right and are anti-left. There is significant use of loaded emotional words such as this: “NFL Player Dez Bryant Delivers Stunning Message on Racism That Has Libs in Shock.” Banned Information does source their information to mostly right or far right sources that have mixed track records with fact checking. Further, Banned Information does not have an about page or any information regarding ownership/authorship or mission. The only name that appears is Kirsters Baish, who is the only writer and does not have biographical information. There are multiple websites across the internet that have this writer’s name and they all look the same. For example these: Red Pill Depot and Alt Drudge to name a few. While the news on these websites are not necessarily fake, it is certainly very questionable to have multiple identical sites publishing similar news with the same fake writer’s name. Overall, this a Questionable source based on extreme bias, promotion of propaganda and very dubious web practices. (D. Van Zandt 10/18/2017)
