Sources in the Conspiracy-Pseudoscience category may publish unverifiable information that is not always supported by evidence. These sources may be untrustworthy for credible/verifiable information, therefore fact checking and further investigation is recommended on a per article basis when obtaining information from these sources. See all Conspiracy-Pseudoscience sources.
- Overall, we rate Oye.news a Tin Foil Hat Conspiracy and Quackery Level Pseudoscience website based on the information provided in the detailed report below.
Factual Reporting: VERY LOW
Country: United Kingdom
World Press Freedom Rank: UK 35/180
Founded in 2011 as written on their about page, although a Whois search shows the domain to be registered in 2016. Who knows? The about page for Oye.news describes themselves as “Real News & Critical Thinking”, has been our slogan for some time as it accurately describes what we are all about.” The website does not disclose ownership and all articles are published by Ceribalius, who does not offer a bio. A search of Twitter turns up CeribaliusBassi who claims to be the owner of Oye.news. The bottom line, this source completely lacks transparency.
Funded by / Ownership
Oye.news does not disclose ownership. It appears revenue is derived strictly through advertising.
Analysis / Bias
In review, Oye.news is a low factual source that routinely publishes fake news, conspiracies, and pseudoscience. For example, they often publish anti-vaccination information such as this: ‘Vaccines are Safe & Effective’ – A Cult Driven by Blind Faith. They also publish information on dangerous alternative medicine practices such as Chelation, which has been debunked. They reject human-influenced climate change and that GMO’s are safe. They further promote common conspiracies such as false flags and the New World Order. Add in Aliens and the fact that they designed the site to look like the BBC and you have a one of the kind Imposter/Questionable/Conspiracy/Pseudoscience website. This website does not appear to have a political bias, but rather a strong bias against science in general, and 100% lack credibility on any level.
Overall, we rate Oye.news a Tin Foil Hat Conspiracy and Quackery Level Pseudoscience website based on the information provided in the detailed report above. (D. Van Zandt 10/19/2019)
