Notes: The Red Elephants has an about page, but who is maintaining the site is unknown. They describe their mission as “The Red Elephants is an organization of like-minded conservatives that have come together to spread awareness and truth.” They publish news stories under the following categories: TRUMP, ECONOMY, POLICE, DONKEYS, SHOP. In the SHOP category they sell t-shirts with messages such as: “F.ck Antifa” and other right wing propaganda.

The Red Elephants reports all news with an extreme right wing bias as they use loaded and sensational headlines such as this: ‘LIAWATHA’ – ‘POCAHONTAS’ – ‘CHIEF SPREADING BULL’ – LOOK OUT, LIZ WARREN AT IT AGAIN!” Further, they source poorly if at all, for example: “SCREW THE INFRASTRUCTURE, CALIFORNIA JUST PROPOSED A BILL TO HELP TRANSGENDER INMATES…” The Red Elephants also report conspiracy theories such as: “OBAMA SHADOW GOVERNMENT: WIRETAPPING AND ROBO-CALLS?” They have also published fake news stories such as: ‘Democrats Legalize Child Prostitution in California“, which is refuted by fact checkers here. Lastly, this source has been linked to the Alt-Right hate movement. Overall, we rate The Red Elephants as a Questionable source based on extreme right wing bias, promotion of conspiracies and fake news as well as links to hate groups. (M. Huitsing 9/15/2017)
