Bias: Extreme Right, Propaganda, Conspiracy
Nation One News is a news and opinion website that has an extreme right-wing bias in reporting. Most articles contain loaded sensationalized headlines and have minimal to poor sourcing in the body of the articles. For example, they source Infowars in one article, which is a very popular conspiracy website (this page has been deleted). In another article (this article has been deleted as of 10/5/2017), they make claims that a fact-checker is funded by George Soros and Hillary Clinton sympathizers, without providing evidence such as a link or name of their source. This is not only dishonest, it can be classified as libel (a published false statement that is damaging to a person’s reputation; written defamation.) Further, in this same article, they claim the fact checker is run by Khoop-Consortium, which is supposedly a “left-wing anarchist group.” Our research reveals that this group does not exist on the web. We are not claiming they do not exist at all, just that we cannot find them. The author then goes on to claim he is filing a lawsuit against this fact-checker, which is surprising since the author is defaming the fact-checker in his own article. In another case, they published a very old debunked conspiracy theory showing Former President Obama’s Kenyan birth certificate (This will probably be deleted also). Nation One News primarily publishes pro-right and anti-left news information, without presenting both sides of the story. In other words, this source primarily produces pro-right propaganda (information, especially of a biased or misleading nature, used to promote a political cause or point of view). This source is also listed on the Fake News Codex as well as another list that classifies it as being a Fake-Conspiracy website. Our review “does not conclude” that this is a fake news website, but rather just an extremely biased one that uses questionable sourcing techniques. (D. Van Zandt 3/16/2017) Updated (10/5/2017)
