Reasoning: Extreme Right, Hate Group, Propaganda, Conspiracy
Notes: Founded in 2005, National Vanguard is an alt-right white supremacy organization founded and run by Kevin Alfred Strom, who is a former member of the National Alliance, which is a white supremacist, neo-Nazi, anti-Semitic and white separatist political organization. Kevin Alfred Strom, according to NBC29 and ABC News, on January 4, 2007 he was arrested on charges of possession of child pornography and witness tampering. Charlottesville Newspaper, The Daily Progress reports in 2008, Strom was sentenced to 23 months in prison on a child pornography charge.
In review, National Vanguard uses loaded emotional language in their articles and headlines such as: “Chicago: Blacks, “Fleeing Authorities,” Try to Hide in Police Station.” They also use other extreme-right white extremist blogs as their sources such as modernheretic3000. Further, the Southern Poverty Law Center lists National Vanguard as a white supremacist site. Due to poor sourcing and hate language, we rate National Vanguard as a Questionable source. (M.
