We always new this was happening and never knew there was a word associated with it. Never thought about the non-political side of "fake news/facts".

 :thumbup:
Social Media are multi-national billion dollar corporations with foreign investors that are going unchecked with the power to effect our election process.

"Book burnings" have evolved into "de-plat forming". Its the same principles behind both: to eliminate accessible knowledge.

I'll watch when I get home...I notice that conservatives really like her and she seems like a respectable journalist to me as well.


I often use one of her resources when consuming media:

Rules of Engagement
Reps pre 1912 = mostly Progressive
Dems pre 1928 = mostly Conservative

How old is this graph? Just curious. I used to be a fan of the economist, actually had a subscription to it some time ago. Only now it seems as though they have turned a little more left in their recent years, which confuses me since your chart seems to place it on the right wing side.

McClatchy is solid leftist as well as the Economist, not to mention Drudge, and a couple of others are questionable as well.
This must be old, Breitbart isn't even mentioned.

That's what I was beginning to think. Completely overlooked the fact that Breitbart wasn't on there. Not to mention the Weekly Standard is no more. Has to be over a year.

Eh...Center-Right is different than Right-Wing, imo.

I don't know how old the chart is, though. I got it directly from her website. But I'd say it's at least 1 year old...

Confirms my suspicions. Certainly nothing wrong with the chart, they get a lot of the points correct. But as Solar just pointed out there seems to be some missing sites as well as older ones. In reality this chart would be constantly morphing with the years.

Center Right for the economist? Not sure about that. Maybe in some of their covering but overall they tend to lean a little more left now then they used to. Then again, I have not read them in over a year, but given the current political climate, I would have to assume they haven't moved anymore right or center.

I'd venture to guess it's a decade old at least. Take the Economist, a well known left leaning zine for at least the last 60 years, run by a solid leftist,  Zanny Minton Beddoes and owned in part by the Rothschilds, followed by Cadbury, Schroder, Layton and Agnelli families.
All of leftist bent.
