The National Pulse
Reasoning: Extreme Right, Propaganda, Conspiracy
Notes: The National Pulse is a Washington-based political news and news media publication. The National Pulse promotes a conservative line on a wide range of issues such as Planned Parenthood, LGBT and Common Core.The National Pulse is also affiliated with the questionable source American Principles Project which advocates for immigration reform, banning abortions and denying LGBTQ equal rights.
The National Pulse’s reporting regarding politics uses strong emotional loaded words such as in this article “LGBT Activists Spending Big to Elect Transgender Candidate in Virginia.” They also only cover one side of the story that favors their conservative causes. Although they do source their articles, it is typically to far right sources that have poor track records with fact checkers. Therefore, we rate The National Pulse questionable due to extreme right wing bias, promotion of propaganda and affiliation with a known questionable group. (M. Huitsing 8/21/2017)
