South Africa Today
Has this Media Source failed a fact check? LET US KNOW HERE.
Reasoning: Right, Propaganda, White Nationalism
Notes: South Africa Today (SAT) News is an English news and information distributor. The main aim of South Africa Today is exposure of South African news. South Africa Today also covers regional African news. South Africa Today does not have about page, therefore the editor is unknown at this time.
In review, South Africa Today News use loaded words in their headlines and articles that favor the BNP (far-right and fascist political party in the United Kingdom) politician Jack Sen who is known for anti-Semitic slurs. South Africa Today also promotes the Front National Party of South Africa, which is a far right, white nationalist, secessionist party. South Africa Today republishes articles from credible sources such as The Conversation, but under the world news category they also republish factually mixed sources like Sputnik. They also publish articles without any sourcing at all. Further, many articles on the website seem to be very pro-Russian with a fascination for Vladimir Putin. Overall, we rate South Africa Today Questionable due to the publication of White Nationalist propaganda and the use of factually mixed sources. (M. Huitsing 10/9/2017)
