Analysis / Bias

In review, Top Topic usually republishes right biased articles from other sources without giving credit (Plagiarism). For example, this story: AOC Might Be In Even Bigger Trouble Than Jussie Smollett For Her Lies About Boyfriend is taken word for word from the Questionable Federalist Papers Project.
