MEDIA BIAS/FACT CHECK: PART OF A LARGER OPERATION TO DESTROY ALTERNATIVE MEDIA | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED

MEDIA BIAS/FACT CHECK: PART OF A LARGER OPERATION TO DESTROY ALTERNATIVE MEDIA

SOURCE: KURT NIMMO
While doing research for a Newsbud video, I came across the Media Bias/Fact Check (MBFC) website. This is one of a growing number of “fact checking” websites designed to discredit news websites not following official narratives closely enough.

Here’s what the site has to say about Newsbud and my participation:

Newsbud (NB) is a right wing, conspiracy and anti-government site founded by, among others, Kurt Nimmo, the former lead editor and writer for Infowars. What sets NB apart from other sites of this type is that the stories are, for the most part, well written and contain numerous sources. The bias of the writing is also more subtle than sites such as Infowars, but just as prevalent. Both as an overtone to all the stories as well as the sometimes questionable sources and / or the conclusions drawn from the source material. Additionally, many of their sources are other NB stories, or work the author and editors have done elsewhere.

MBFC imparts misinformation in the first sentence. If it had done appropriate research, its ideologically driven checkers would have discovered Newsbud was established by Sibel Edmonds. I was invited to participate after the website was established and I am not a founder, as MBFC claims.

This error—more accurately described as shoddy and careless research—reveals the liberal bias of the site and its proprietor, Dave Van Zandt.

MBFC’s methodology is admittedly “subjective,” but this is not an issue for those working to destroy alternative media.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Kurt Nimmo is one blogger for whom Mike and I have a great deal of respect, and we link to his articles frequently.
