Reasoning: Extreme Right, Propaganda, Fake News
Conservative Byte displays sensational headlines and most of its stories, when clicked, directs readers to either the Conservative Tribune or Western Journalism which consistently fails fact checks and promotes right wing conspiracies. For example, this claim that is rated false by Snopes: “President Obama altered the White House logo to replace the U.S flag with a white flag (commonly associated with surrender” and from westernjournalism.com, another claim that is false “Photograph reportedly depicts a Christian Saudi woman gruesomely punished to silence her from professing her Christian faith.
This site doesn’t have an about page and their Twitter page has tweets such as “Media Ignoring this 500-Pound Elephant in the Room http://bit.ly/2ovRwWg “and when clicked it directs you to the Conservative Byte page, but there isn’t a story with the headline they refer to. Conservative Byte publishes fake news that is established as click bait to drive traffic to the Conservative Tribune and Western Journalism. Overall, we rate this website questionable due to extreme right wing bias, promotion of propaganda and fake news. (M. Huitsing 8/16/2017) Updated (11/4/2019)
