Reasoning: Extreme Right, Propaganda, Conspiracy, Anti-Islam
Speisa is a website that publishes sensational stories. The owner/editor of the website is unknown. According to their about page, Speisa describes its content as “posts are not satire, as lots of real, really strange stuff are happening in this strange world. Some news is funny, some are sad, and some are plain horrific.”
Speisa publishes anti-Muslim articles such as “Geldof to house four Syrian families.” They report this news story factually at first, and then interject anti-Muslim commentary such as these quotes: “Then it will be Geldof wearing an orange jumpsuit, ready to be beheaded on video and broadcasted via Raqqa. Ignorant Geldof will finally be able to see how Islam plays out.” This generalization of Syrian refugees indicates an extreme bias against Muslims.
Speisa also publishes sensational clickbait headlines that focus on a variety of topics mostly with emotionally loaded headlines and content such as “Obamagate: Photo shows Obama’s ties to radical Islam.” Speisa frequently uses factually mixed sources such as The Daily Caller and Daily Mail. Overall, this site is a questionable source due to the publication of anti-Muslim propaganda and poor sourcing with an extreme right-wing bias. (M. Huitsing 1/29/2018)
