Reasoning: Extreme Right, Propaganda, Conspiracy, Hate Group, Some Fake News
Notes: GotNews is an Alt-Right news and opinion website with extreme right wing bias in reporting. GotNews is founded and owned by Charles C. Johnson who has been called an internet troll and the most hated man on the internet. According to the Southern Poverty Law Center Johnson has numerous ties to the racist “Alt-Right” and has professed white supremacist views. He also has made controversial quotes such as these: (On Blacks) “that they’re systematically discriminating against blacks for some reason. Or you have to believe the more obvious thing which is that they’re dumber. And enough experience with them kind of persuades you that the dumber thing is probably true.” (On Jews) “And it is interesting how the things that are the most screwed up in our society — media, education, and government — seem to have a disproportionate number of them.”
GotNews also routinely publishes unproven claims such as this. In short, we rate GotNews as questionable based on unproven claims, blatant white supremacy and promotion of right wing propaganda. To learn more about Charles C. Johnson and GotNews we recommend Wikipedia. (D. Van Zandt 8/12/2017)
