Shared News Report
*Voting Polls do not affect MBFC bias ratings
Bias: Extreme Right, Propaganda, Conspiracy, Anti-Islam
Notes: On their about page, Shared News Report does not indicate who owns or edits the website content, however they describe their mission as ”Shared News Report is a leading political and world current affairs website. The website has always encouraged independent views, and never encouraged any party’s agenda.”
In review, Shared News Report is an extreme right wing biased website through story selection and wording. The sources used by Shared News Report are either from other extreme sources such as 0404 News: “Now The Arabs Of East Jerusalem Are Throwing Puppies At The IDF…Instead Of Rocks” or they use Infowars-Alex Jones, which is a factually low conspiracy site to back up their claims. For example: “COMPUTER AI ALGORITHM SHOWS TRUMP AT 65% APPROVAL RATING!” and “Muslims Demand The Queen Convert Or Leave England. Further, the majority of stories on the website are highly critical of Muslims through the publication of propaganda and conspiracy theories. Overall, we rate Shared News Report as a Questionable website due to extreme right wing bias, poor sourcing and promotion of both propaganda and conspiracy theories. (M. Huitsing 9/22/2017)
