The Fake News Codex is a website created to identify “news” sites that are fake, extremely misleading, or satirical. They do not list highly biased sites, but rather focus solely on Fake News sources.  Many of the sites listed on The Fake News Codex are also listed on our website in the Conspiracy, Satire, or Questionable Source categories. All in all the site is laid out nicely and is a good resource. (D. Van Zandt 3/25/2017)
