Reasoning: Extreme Right, Propaganda, Fake News
Police Times is an extreme right-wing biased blog that strongly favors the 2nd amendment and publishes fake news. Police Times does not have an about page, disclaimer, or names of any person behind the site. A whois search reveals that the owner of the site may be located in Great Britain. All articles utilize very strong loaded words that favor the right and denigrate the left. While sources vary, the most commonly used source is the Questionable Mad World News, which is also on Politifacts fake news list. Further, Police Times have published completely fake news such as this: 2 Million Rounds Of Ammo That ‘Went Missing’ Under Obama Turns Up In Enemy Hands. Unfortunately, this is an entirely fake news story. Without any author information, publishing fake news, and linking to a known fake news website, we rate Police Times Questionable. (D.
