World Press Freedom Rank: USA 45/180
Founded in July 2018 by Dean Garrison, DC Dirty Laundry is the sister site of the Questionable DC Clothesline. According to their about page: “In a country where free speech is in serious danger, we have decided to aggressively expand and fight, because the truth can not die and the mainstream liberal media can not be allowed to write history according to their own flawed perception. WE BELIEVE IN GOD, FAMILY AND COUNTRY. IN THAT ORDER!”

Analysis / Bias
In review, DC Dirty Laundry is an extreme right conspiracy and propaganda website. In fact, the stories published on this site make it difficult to believe this is not a satire site, however there isn’t a disclaimer, so we assume they are serious. For example, they promote the following conspiracies on the home page today:
- “I Know Where All The Bodies Are Buried”: Clinton Foundation CFO Spills the Beans to FBI, IRS
- Immigrant children being organ harvested in massive global organ trade racket that’s beginning to be exposed
- BOMBSHELL: Evidence that Explosives took down WTC Buildings on 9/11 to go before Special Grand Jury
- Leader of Clinton-Linked NXIVM Sex Cult “Had Sex With 15-Year-Old Slave,” Locked Woman In Room For 2 Years & Approved Of Incest
Outside of promoting right wing conspiracy theories they also publish anti-vaccine pseudoscience propaganda, which comes from the discredited Natural News. In general, the sources used for stories come other conspiracy websites such as ZeroHedge and the Free Thought Project.
Overall, we rate DC Dirty Laundry Questionable due to extreme right wing bias and promotion of propaganda and conspiracies. This source also publishes fake news as evidenced from the above links, but they have not been fact checked by an IFCN fact checker as of yet. (D. Van Zandt 12/10/2018)
