Reasoning: Extreme Right, Propaganda, Conspiracy
The Political Tribune is an extreme right-wing biased news and opinion website. All articles contain loaded emotional words to favor the right and discredit the left. News information is poorly sourced to other questionable media sources or not all. In other cases, they will source to a credible media outlet such as USA Today and then sensationalize the headline to mislead the reader. This is known as click-baiting. For example, The Political Tribune sourced a USA Today story about how congress may pass a bill to eliminate past President pensions if they earn more than $400K per year. This obviously would impact all living Presidents, however, the headline reads: Congress Wants To CANCEL Barack Obama’s Pension! Here Is Why. This is very misleading as the story has nothing to do with directly taking away Obama’s pension. This is a classic example of a questionable source using factual information to create a misleading narrative. In other words, propaganda. The Political Tribune is also on Factcheck.org’s fake news list. (D. Van Zandt 7/8/2017)
