Reasoning: Left-Center, Poor Sourcing

Embols recently wound up on a list by an Assistant Professor of Communications and Media.  However, this list has been widely circulated and criticized for liberal bias. Embols is a news reporting site that takes information from other sources and repackages it.  In reviewing this site we found one article that sourced a fake story from a conspiracy site.  Most others were just poorly sourced.
