Bias: Fake News, Poor Sourcing
Notes: The Sunday Inquirer is a news website without an about page, therefore there is no way for us to tell its mission or who founded the site. They consistently publish stories without sourcing. For example, they will take a story from another source and reword it, but not ever credit where the story came from: “Japanese Single Mothers Facing Poverty And Battle With Dishonour”. The original story appeared in the Washington Post “In Japan, single mothers struggle with poverty and a ‘culture of shame’. In all stories reviewed, there wasn’t a single source listed, although the stories were real and able to be found via Google. There also wasn’t any evidence of bias in what was reported other than most of the stories were either shocking or ridiculous. Overall, the Sunday Inquirer is a Questionable source based on lack of an about page, poor sourcing and sensational content. (M. Huitsing 9/5/2017)
