Reasoning: Extreme Right, Propaganda, Conspiracy
Squawker is a news and opinion website that claims to be a fact-checker, especially of the mainstream media. In reality, this is a website that promotes conspiracies with an extreme right bias. We have decided to classify this website as questionable versus a conspiracy-pseudoscience site due to the extreme political bias that always favors the right and discredits the left. An example of a conspiracy article is one entitled: Is Obama Plotting A Second Civil War? EX-Aide Says Yes, Obama Still Thinks He’s The President. There isn’t evidence that Obama is plotting anything or thinks he is still President. The primary source for this story is Dick Morris and Infowars. A conspiracy takes a story such as Obama holding meetings each day and opines a much more sinister plot. This is a classic example of conspiracy and also propaganda. In order to keep this short, I will just summarize that this website is very anti-Islam and openly declares them an enemy. They also have a ridiculous article using skewed stats that show men are raped by women at an equal rate as women. Overall, this is an extreme right-wing biased website that promotes propaganda and conspiracy. (D. Van Zandt 8/10/2017)
