Analysis / Bias

In review, in the past CLG News provided original writing’s by Michael Rectenwald, however in 2020 they appear to only provide summaries of news stories and provide links to the source. For news curation sites we analyze the topic selection and sources used. A review of 50 news stories reveals more favoring the right with the use of credible sources such as The Hill, Reuters, and MSN. However, there is an equal use of poor sources such as the New York Post, National File, Breitbart, and PJ Media. All of whom have failed numerous fact checks.

On the sidebar of the website they provide a link to Scholars for 9/11 Truth, which promotes 9/11 conspiracies such as controlled demolition and an inside job. Further, they also provide a link to wirelesswatchblog.org, which promotes pseudoscience and conspiracy theories regarding wireless technologies. In general, this a source that provides curated news stories that lean right and sometimes use poor sources. They also promote conspiracy theories and pseudoscience through the endorsement of websites that promote such.

Overall, we rate CLG News a moderate conspiracy and pseudoscience website based on the promotion of information that is unproven. (D. Van Zandt 10/11/2016) Updated (8/22/2020)
