Factual Reporting: HIGH
Notes: www.stopfake.org is a credible news source, but you will find a very pro-Ukraine standpoint to combat the state-controlled and often very pro-Russian news most people in that area get. From speaking with sources from Ukraine and people familiar with the conflicts, the news in Ukraine and around Crimea is riddled with false and misleading information often from Russian sources. There’s little to be trusted. As far as the site goes: Titles like Six Outrageous Lies Russian Disinformation Peddled about Europe in 2016 Uses a very modern clickbait method to gain attention. However, inside it shows the various .ru (Russian) news reports that show disinformation that is being spread throughout Europe about various events. Some to focus on are the rise of immigrants into Europe and overstating the crimes and destruction they pose. Russian media claims that Poland is building a wall to keep Ukraine people out. But references an interview where that is never mentioned.
This piece about Reddit shows how much research they will put into debunking the false information spread far and wide they feel is from Russian sources. It has links to Reddit, Buzzfeed, Twitter, CNN, .RU sites.
If you are interested in following what is happening in Crimea and subsequently what is happening between Ukraine and Russia, you should view this site. There is a lot of news that is not covered in Western countries and lots of people are in the dark about what is happening over there. This article goes over the Russian propaganda machine in full effect. It cites the Russian Media sites that perpetuate lies and then backtrack the lies after the fact. Russia accuses Ukraine and rebels over the fighting when it’s the opposite. Overall, this source leans left, but sources consistently to credible information. (M. Allen 2/16/2017)
