Opinion site

Erin's picture

I would asses the trustworthiness of this article of this site lower because it's clearly a opinion site. They make some effort to include links to prove what Trump was saying. However almost all the rest of the links are to other (equally biased) articles on the same site. They analyse what is said but don't give evidence to disprove the claims. What would be the assessment of the trustworthiness of the owners of the site?

I agree with your assessment,

I agree with your assessment, except under mistrust markers where you said that this site is a right wing advocacy site. This site actually is focused on exposing the right wing activists. There are a few more trust/ mistrust markers I saw while reading. This article does in fact have a real author, but if you look through his other posts, all of his content is highly opinionated and sometimes click-batty. The site itself is highly opinionated, but there are very minimal ads.

I agree with your assessment, but would actually give it a more trustworthy rating. The article uses trustworthy sources to prove that the conspiracy theory claims were false. It is obviously a biased site, like every other news outlet, but uses real facts and does not fabricate click-baity titles. However, some word choice makes this article feel less professional, such as "bogus." Biased word choice does not make the article less real, though.

Not Trustworthy

Jemma's picture

I agree that this site doesn't seem very trustworthy. They seem pretty biased in their viewpoints and would only cater to their target audiences. Many of their source links lead back to their own articles which seems a little weird to me. Though I think some of their facts could be correct, since they focus on right wing issues, they might have some incorrect and biased statements within their articles.
