Talk:List of fake news websites

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to navigation Jump to search

This article is the largest hoax on the wiki[edit]

A traditional and accessed site like global research is listed, used as a basis for news agencies without tradition or quality as snopes and in addition does not list criminal sites like JDL and Kavkaz Center. Funny also do not cite Mídia Sem Máscara that released fake news from Ursal in full Brazilian election. Please check this out too. 2804:14C:5BB5:915D:F418:4C9B:923D:51C9 (talk) 08:52, 19 September 2018 (UTC)

globalresearch.org(or globalresearch.ca) is a conspiracy theory website. There's no question about that. Hell, on their front page right now is the claim that the War on Terror was a secret move by Neoconservatives to end Democracy and usher in a New World Order™. I think you may be thinking of globalsecurity.org, which is a fairly well respected site that is frequently used by news agencies for research. I have no idea what you mean by "without tradition or quality as snopes" though. You may want to re-phrase that. As for any additions to this list, we need reliable sources to support them. ᛗᛁᛟᛚᚾᛁᚱPants Tell me all about it. 12:32, 19 September 2018 (UTC)
and the MBL? [1]. 2804:14C:5BB5:83A3:3C94:7494:E367:82D (talk) 13:11, 8 October 2018 (UTC)
What about it? This list is not a copypasta from the FB blacklist, nor is Wikipedia responsible for anything Facebook does. ᛗᛁᛟᛚᚾᛁᚱPants Tell me all about it. 13:15, 8 October 2018 (UTC)
I was referring to snopes.com. The question is on the internet everything that thrives is modinha passageira. In Portugal and in Brazil, Global Research is a source and I have the option that countries such as Iceland, Japan, Mexico, the United Kingdom and Russia accept all these universities. And USP, the best Latin American university, has listed some fake news sites.: [1] 2804:14C:5BB5:83A3:3C94:7494:E367:82D (talk) 13:25, 8 October 2018 (UTC)
You were referring to snopes.com without mentioning snopes.com, but rather directly saying "what about Y" which is not snopes.com, and linking to a Portuguese-language website running a story about some sites getting "caught up" in a Facebook.com block? That's completely nonsensical.
globalresearch.org is a fake news site, this is established beyond all reasonable doubt. Indeed, it is notorious for it's fake news. Right now, in it's "science" section, one of the top stories is a CS-laden piece about how the US military uses hurricanes and typhoons as weapons. It's ludicrous. ᛗᛁᛟᛚᚾᛁᚱPants Tell me all about it. 13:31, 8 October 2018 (UTC)
How will we write about history if every day at least one big site is accused of fake news? Remember that only futile things like Clodovil Henandez and the tacky one can be judged by this criterion if it is something encyclopedic. 2804:14C:5BB5:83A3:3C94:7494:E367:82D (talk) 13:36, 8 October 2018 (UTC)
So perhaps for consistency we should list Veja magazine as fake news as well. 2804:14C:5BB5:83A3:3C94:7494:E367:82D (talk) 13:41, 8 October 2018 (UTC)

─────────────────────────No, see WP:POINT and WP:V. If you cannot provide reliable sources identifying a site as a fake news site, you may not add it to this list. ᛗᛁᛟᛚᚾᛁᚱPants Tell me all about it. 14:00, 8 October 2018 (UTC)

And here?187.20.109.19 (talk) 14:57, 8 October 2018 (UTC)
I'm going to close this section if you don't start making a coherent point. I understand that English may be your second language, but you're not proposing any concrete changes to this article except for one WP:POINTy suggestion that will never fly. ᛗᛁᛟᛚᚾᛁᚱPants Tell me all about it. 15:06, 8 October 2018 (UTC)
Don't feed the trolls, people. We've got one user who's obviously not here to build an encyclopedia and another who's dignifying their ridiculous arguments by prolonging this discussion unnecessarily. Smartyllama (talk) 20:19, 11 October 2018 (UTC)
WP:DONTFEED is an essay. WP:AGF is a policy, and this editor clearly has some difficulties with English. So kindly fuck off with your 3-days-late shitty advice. ᛗᛁᛟᛚᚾᛁᚱPants Tell me all about it. 20:28, 11 October 2018 (UTC)

NPOV in the Philippine section[edit]

This list is biased in favor of the Philippine opposition. But it is well known that either side is spreading fake news.[citation needed]

Rappler.com has been caught spereading fake news itself[citation needed], so at least it should not be used as source. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Stefan999 (talkcontribs) 14:21, 23 September 2018 (UTC)

I've annotated your comment. Please take these annotations as literal requests and provide reliable sources supporting those statements, and we will adjust the list accordingly. If there are no reliable sources supporting them, then nothing will be done. ᛗᛁᛟᛚᚾᛁᚱPants Tell me all about it. 14:34, 23 September 2018 (UTC)

Now-defunct NewsBuzzDaily needs to be removed from the "List of Fake News Sites"[edit]

NewsBuzzDaily.com has been defunct for quite a while. It used to be a fake news site. It is still on the list. I bought the domain after it was defunct, and it will eventually be redirected to a valid news site. My degree is in Journalism. How do I update this list of fake news sites? I would like NewsBuzzDaily to be removed from the list. Thank you. LorBailey (talk) 11:55, 24 September 2018 (UTC)LorBailey

Thanks LorBailey. I've indicated in the table that this site is defunct. It should remain on this list, though, as people could still come across the site's content through screenshots, archived pages, citations, and so on. Adrian J. Hunter(talkcontribs) 13:41, 24 September 2018 (UTC)
