However, in 2020 they simply link to a variety of sources placed in different categories such as News & Politics, Tech, Finance, and Cryptocurrency. The website completely lacks transparency as there is zero information on anything.

News Heist does not disclose ownership or a revenue model.

Analysis / Bias

In review, News Heist is a news link portal that links to other sources. The majority of sources they endorse fall along the extreme right, conspiratorial, and low factual categories. The website also displays an icon of Pepe the Frog as their browser avatar, which is a symbol of racist, antisemitic, sexist, or other bigoted themes. Some of the sources they link to are the Questionable Gateway Pundit, OANN, and Bongino, as well as conspiracy sites True Pundit and Zero Hedge, to name a few. Not much else to report here. They link to poor sources who routinely fail fact checks and mostly have a strong right-leaning bias.

Failed Fact Checks

  • None. They do not produce content.

Overall, we rate News Heist as far-right biased and Questionable based on the use of poor sources who frequently fail fact checks and a complete lack of transparency. (D. Van Zandt 12/29/2016) Updated (12/9/2020)
