Reasoning: Extreme Right, Propaganda, Poor Sourcing, Lack of Transparency
Founded in 2018, Black Eye Politics is a strongly right leaning news and opinion website. The website completely lacks transparency as there isn’t an about page, nor authors listed on news stories, and no mention of an owner. In fact, there aren’t any names associated with the website.
Funded by / Ownership
Black Eye Politics does not list ownership, however at the bottom of the website it states that it is copyrighted by Rising Media News Network, LLC. A search of the internet does not produce a result for this company. Revenue is derived from advertising.
Analysis / Bias
In review, Black Eye Politics publishes news and opinions with an extreme right wing bias. Story selection always favors the right and denigrates the left through the use of loaded emotional wording such as this: Joe Biden Said One Thing That Means a Top Democrat Will Destroy Him. The article itself also contains significant loaded quotes such as this: “In the current era, Democrats are more insane than they have ever been.” Another example of extremely loaded wording can be found here: Nancy Pelosi’s Own Party Just Smacked Her With Horrible News. This story, like most on the website either does not provide hyperlinked sourcing or is linked to the Questionable Great American Daily. In general, this is an extreme right biased propaganda website.
A factual search reveals that Black Eye Politics has not been fact checked by an IFCN fact checker.
Overall, we rate Black Eye Politics Questionable based on extreme right bias, promotion of propaganda, poor sourcing and complete lack of transparency. (D. Van Zandt 6/20/2019)
