FACT-CHECKERS EXPOSED: Hacks Behind Blacklisting Website Newsguard Are Unhinged Leftists and Trump-Haters
Here’s some real news…
Newsguard claims to be a non-partisan fact-checking organization.
But a quick glance at its operations and related social media accounts shows an unhinged group of committed Trump-haters.
Newsguard is a media “fact-checking” company that was started in 2018. They claim to rate websites for reliability. Basically, they’re in the business of deciding who is fake news and who is not. And they HATE pro-Trump publishers and citizen journalists. The company is supported by Trump-haters, elites and media giants.
Now there is proof the activists behind Newsguard are unhinged liberal anti-Trumpers.
Our friends at the conservative website 100percentfedup recently shared information with The Gateway Pundit that exposes the Newsguard liberal activists.
Last spring, 100% Fed Up was contacted by Jason Silverstein of NewsGuard, who was snooping for information about their website.
But here are a couple of screenshots which betray his politics.
Look who retweeted this anti-Trump screed in early January:
Silverstein retweeted this report in January. What’s at the heart of his concern here?
In July, 100% Fed Up was contacted by David Lepeska of NewsGuard.
Here are some screenshots from his Twitter account.
He is an unhinged far left Trump-hater.
Finally, 100% Fed Up was contacted by someone named Josh Keefe of NewsGuard who asked this:
“We also noted that you use Andrew Breitbart’s likeness in your banner. Do you have permission from his estate or widow to use his likeness to promote your site?”
They must really care about Breitbart. Oh wait:
Financial Blacklisting: NewsGuard Advises Advertisers to Avoid Pro-Trump Media
NewsGuard, the news-filtering browser extension recently partnered with Microsoft and run by neoconservatives, Obama-Clinton alumni, and other assorted Trump haters, has advised advertisers to withdraw their business from websites on its blacklist of “unreliable” news websites — a list that includes Breitbart News, The Drudge Report, and the Daily Mail.
NewsGuard’s tactic is similar the one used by far-left smear peddlers Sleeping Giants, whose mission is to spread baseless accusations of racism and white supremacy to the advertisers of pro-Trump media outlets in order to put them out of business and silence their voice. Two of the sites on NewsGuard’s list, Breitbart News and the Daily Mail, are also prominent targets of Sleeping Giants.
The effect isn’t merely to silence pro-Trump media. It also ensures advertisers don’t market their products to Trump voters, causing them to rely less and less on consumers in the heartland, and more on progressive consumers who read establishment news sources.
NewsGuard’s Editorial Director is Eric Effron.
Take a look at some of his online activity and ask yourself if this person is nonpartisan.
Is it all about starving conservative sites of revenue?
He likes the Huffington Post, though…
Does any of that seem nonpartisan to you?
If someone is going to presume to decide what qualifies as “fake news” shouldn’t they at least try to seem impartial?
Newsguard was founded by a group of Trump-hating elitists determined to silence the voices of ordinary Americans.
Their mission is to starve anyone who does not tote the elitist narrative.
This group is working to put publishers like The Gateway Pundit, Breitbart News, 100% Fed Up, The Drudge Report, The Daily Mail, and any other prominent pro-American, anti-globalist voice out of business.
The company pretends to be non-partisan but is full of Trump-haters.
Now you know.
