Like most questionable sources BlingNews.com does not have an about page. A Whois search reveals the domain was purchased in August 2016 and is registered privately.
Funded by / Ownership
Again, there isn’t any information on the website to indicate who owns this website or authors its articles. It appears to be funded through online advertising.
Analysis / Bias
In review, the tagline for the website is “top destination for all your lifestyle needs.” While there are a few articles pertaining to lifestyle and fashion, most are highly right wing biased political news. Headlines always use emotionally charged wording such as: After Reporter Interrupts Mattis With Lies About Trump, He Unleashes Hell Fire on the Press. Blingnews.com usually sources to videos for their news articles and sometimes hyperlinks to credible media sources such as the New York Times. However, BlingNews.com also has a Pants of Fire claim according to Politifact.
Overall, BlingNews.com is a Questionable source based on extreme right wing bias and the publishing of fake news. (D. Van Zandt 7/14/2018) Updated (11/26/2019)
