Analysis / Bias
InfoGalactic’s newsfeed does not contain original content but rather curated news stories. On their news page, they also link to a host of websites and writers so that readers may view their news. Some notable names on the list that fall within our Questionable or Conspiracy categories are: Mike Cernovich, Milo Yiannopoulos, Taki’s Magazine, Return of Kings, Zerohedge, and Roosh V. Many of these sources have been labeled White Nationalist, and some appear on the Southern Poverty Law Center website for hate. In reviewing their Wiki pages, they are very similar in content to Wikipedia regarding political figures. InfoGalactic sources all information and typically uses credible sources.
