Founded in 2017, Fabiosa is a website that publishes lifestyle, health, and entertainment news. According to their about page “Our aim is to make this world better. We do our best to create content that helps people, inspires them, teaches how to understand themselves and others better, helps to learn more about the wonderful world we live in, and maybe even make it a little bit kinder!”
Funded by / Ownership
The website is owned by Fabiosa Media which claims they are a Global Media Publisher, “We have media projects in 6 languages and our virtual family is from the USA, Canada, Mexico, Brazil, Argentina, France, the UK, Germany, Italy, Spain, and many other countries.” Revenue is derived through advertising.
Analysis / Bias
In review, Fabiosa publishes clickbait sensationalized news stories with emotional wording such as this: 85-Year-Old Woman Survives Hurricane Dorian After Floating In Her Chair For 3 Days In Rising Waters: “She Is A Living Miracle”. Fabiosa rarely covers political news, however, they do cover political figures in a sensational manner such as this: Book Claims Melania And Ivanka Trump Don’t Get Along Well, But Ivana Trump Says Her Daughter “Likes” Melania.
Fabiosa also reports on alternative health that promotes pseudoscience. For example, they promote that essential oils can cure cancer What Oncologists Keep Silent About: Essential Oils Can Be Very Effective Against Cancer. There isn’t medical evidence to support this claim. In general, they report sensationalized stories that are not always factual.
Failed Fact Checks
