    But how will you know whether or not you agree with racist propaganda if you don't read it?

    QUESTIONABLE SOURCE A questionable source exhibits one or more of the following: extreme bias, consistent promotion of propaganda/conspiracies, poor or no sourcing to credible information, a complete lack of transparency and/or is fake news. Fake News is the deliberate attempt to publish hoaxes and/or disinformation for the purpose of profit or influence (Learn More). Sources listed in the Questionable Category may be very untrustworthy and should be fact checked on a per article basis. Please note sources on this list are not considered fake news unless specifically written in the reasoning section for that source. See all Questionable sources. Detailed Report Reasoning: Extreme Right, Propaganda, Conspiracy, Failed Fact Checks Country: USA World Press Freedom Rank: USA 48/180 History Breitbart News is a conservative news and opinion website founded in 2007 by Andrew Breitbart (1969–2012). He was a conservative commentator and entrepreneur “a former liberal from Los Angeles who became a conservative” wrote Jonah Engel Bromwich of the NY Times. Breitbart News under his leadership generated news coverage that was praised by the right for its populist, anti-establishment voice, on the left however, he was also accused of being a provocateur and misleading. Andrew Breitbart also co-founded the Huffington Post. After Andrew Breitbart died in 2012, former investment banker for Goldman Sachs, Stephen Bannon became the executive chairman of Breitbart. Under Bannon the website became more nationalist and a vocal outlet of the alt-right movement. According to Sarah Posner from Mother Jones, during her interview with Bannon, he described Breitbart News as “a platform to the alt-right.” Bannon, who was chief executive of the Trump campaign, and then White House chief strategist for seven months before returning to Breitbart News, had stepped down from his position at Breitbart in 2018. Larry Solov is the co-founder and CEO of Breitbart News and Alex Marlow serves as editor-in-chief. In October 2018, Breitbart was banned as a reliable source in Wikipedia. Further, they were added as a reliable news source to Facebook’s new news initiative. This decision was met by harsh criticism by several media outlets, including Media Bias Fact Check. Funded by / Ownership After the death of Andrew Breitbart in 2012, Larry Solov became CEO and president of Breitbart News. In 2017, according to Politico, Larry Solov revealed the owner of Breitbart as “himself, founder Andrew Breitbart’s widow, Susie Breitbart, and the Republican mega donor family, the Mercers.” Further, Solov also made a statement that he wants “to disclose as little as possible about financial and ownership structure.” Analysis / Bias Breitbart consist of various sections called Big Government, Big Journalism, Big Hollywood, National Security, Tech, Sports, and Wired. Breitbart uses sensational emotionally loaded language in their headlines such as “Obama Loses 2 Million+ Followers During Twitter Fake Account Purge.” They utilize sources such as tabloid entertainment magazine Variety, and credible sources such as Bloomberg. as well as factually mixed sources such as the Daily Mail. Under the Big Hollywood section they publish tabloid stories such as “Fashion Notes: Melania Trump is Posh and Proper for Final Day in England” utilizing fashion sources such as farfetch.com A 2014 Pew Research Survey found that 7% of Breitbart’s audience is consistently or mostly liberal, 14% Mixed and 79% consistently or mostly conservative. This indicates that Breitbart is heavily preferred by a more conservative audience. In general, the majority of published stories favor the right and are highly pro-Trump in tone and story selection. A factual search reveals numerous failed fact checks by IFCN Fact Checkers. Here are just a few of many as an example: Breitbart Duped by Fake News (Again) (False) Following Joe Kennedy’s speech, Breitbart says Fall River, Mass. not built by immigrants (False) Breitbart gets the wrong Loretta Lynch in Whitewater claim (Pants on Fire) Did Planned Parenthood ‘Team Up’ With Satanists to Promote Abortion Rights in Missouri? (False) Trump’s ISIS Conspiracy Theory (False) Breitbart article baselessly claims a study of past climate invalidates human-caused climate change (False) Overall, we rate Breitbart Questionable based on extreme right wing bias, publication of conspiracy theories and propaganda as well as numerous false claims.

  3. So, according to this there is about a 2% chance of the Pac 12 winning all their bowl games. The initial question suggests that the person who posed it doesn't understand math very well.

    I would wager the vast majority could pull down more than $175k in the private sector. If someone is in congress for the money, it isn't the money they draw from their salary.

    Surprised Kentucky doesn't require the doctors to call the young woman a sinner and a slut.

    And here is how it is going to be presented to Fox viewers: Even as Chris Wallace explains the major takeaway from the report is that the investigation was that there was no political bias and that it was proper to launch investigation, Fox has headline underneath implying the opposite:

    Do nothing and throw insults at me, I'm sure that will work much better than trying. Whatever gets you through the night.

    I live in Utah, so spare me the pity party. If you would rather sulk than participate, that is on you. It kills Trump that he lost the popular vote, my vote was one that was against him. If my children or grandchildren ever ask, I can tell them I voted against Trump.
  11. GG Ducks, hope you work whichever B1G team you face in the Rose.
  12. Give Cristobal credit, he had a better gameplan than Whitt from the start. Sold out against run and pressure killed the Utes line.
  13. Utah's OL getting worked, they have been the weakest link all year, Oregon exposes them.
  14. Huntley reverting to his sophomore form.
