Notes: InfoGalactic is essentially an Alt-Right Wikipedia website. They publish Wiki’s about people and events as well as provide a news feed that favors the right in story selection. 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 Wikipages, they are very similar in content to Wikipedia when it comes to political figures. InfoGalactic sources all information and typically uses credible sources. Overall, we rate InfoGalactic Questionable based on their newsfeed that has an extreme right wing bias in story selection as well as the writers associated with their news page. (D.
