Reasoning: Extreme Right, Propaganda, Conspiracy, Some Fake News

The News Guru is a news and opinion website with an extreme right-wing bias in reporting. The founder/owner is James Ledbetter who describes himself as a freelance writer on his linkedin page.

In review, all articles published on The News Guru favor the right and are anti-left. The News Guru has extreme right-wing bias in story selection and frequently uses loaded words in their headlines and articles, such as: “Obama and the Deep State Sabotage Trump’s Presidency.” Although they do use credible sources such as Business Insider, Politifact, and even NASA, these are used for misleading purposes with sensational headlines such as: “NASA to announce evidence of “alien life,” says Anonymous.” Further, Anonymous is a very questionable source that promotes conspiracy theories. The News Guru also has a WIKI section that promotes conspiracy theories, such as the Seth Rich Murder. They also promote conspiracies on their main news page such as this: “Smoking Gun? Bombshell Footage Shows Ambulances Removing Bodies From The Hooters Casino During Las Vegas Shooting.” Overall, we rate The News Guru Questionable based on extreme right-wing bias, promotion of propaganda, conspiracies, and some fake news.
