Analysis / Bias
London Web News republishes or summarizes news stories from other sources. Articles and headlines are usually highly sensationalized, such as this Sex Addict and BDSM Fantasist Lured Teenage Girl to his House and Brutally Killed Her. Further, they do not credit the sources they are republishing, which is both plagiarism and copyright infringement. They also publish stories that appear to be fabricated entirely, such as this British Soldiers Disguised as Muslim Women to Avoid being Captured by the Taliban. There aren’t any other sources or evidence that this is true.
Editorially, they do not seem to have editorial bias and just publish sensational or fake news stories.
