Analysis / Bias

In review, YourNewsWire is a conspiracy and pseudoscience website that also routinely publishes fake news. Headlines use loaded emotional language such as this: I Was In The Illuminati I’m Going To Tell You Everything, Shocking Expose. Politically, story selection almost always favors the right through negative stories regarding liberal policy and politicians such as this: CIA Insider: Hillary Clinton Most Treasonous Leader In History.

YourNewsWire publishes anti-vaccination propaganda, stories of impending world war 3 and extraterrestrial stories, just to name a few. Further, YourNewsWire has made Factcheck.org’s fake news list. as well as having an abysmal track record with fact checkers. Finally, according to Poynter Institute, YourNewsWire has more false claims by IFCN fact checkers than any other website.

Overall, we rate YourNewsWire a Tin Foil Hat level conspiracy website that has zero credibility due to routine publishing of fake news. (9/10/2016) Updated (D. Van Zandt 7/23/2018)
