Reasoning: Extreme Right, Propaganda, Conspiracy, Fake News
Notes: Hogg Watch or Hoggwatch.com is a website that popped up right after the Parkland High School shootings. The website was created by Mike Adams who runs the extreme right Conspiracy-Pseudoscience website Natural News. NBC News has a detailed article explaining this website and its owner.
In review, this website serves one purpose and that is to discredit and defame David Hogg. Virtually, every story published is a debunked conspiracy theory related to David Hogg or gun control. Generally, the sources for these articles are other very questionable sources such as Infowars and the Gateway Pundit. All articles contain excessive loaded emotional language such as: It’s all THEATER: Florida high school shooting survivor caught on video rehearsing scripted lines, coached by camera man. The conspiracy theory that David Hogg is a crisis actor was debunked immediately by multiple sources. Essentially, every story on this website is either not factual or misleading.
Overall, we rate Hogg Watch a Questionable Source based on extreme right wing bias, promotion of tin foil hat conspiracy theories and publication of fake news.
