So today I was introduced to Ad Fontes Media which claims to be able to identify via a massive algorithm platform how media outlets rate on a scale of fraud to mainstream reliability. This very unbiased, nonpartisan company is based in Colorado and sports a team of five who sit around reading every article published by every outlet – upwards of 80 articles in any given outlet – and determine their rating on their scale.
Within this non biased spectrum, they have published a graph of sorts that unforgivingly denotes their preferences based on their teams determinations…
Not surprisingly they love WAPO, NYT, The Economist, Huffington Post, CNN, Salon, etc… – all verifiably unbiased in their reporting and analysis! They demonize The American Thinker, Zero Hedge, Breitbart, and even Judicial Watch!
This is not Babylon Bee! This company truly claims an unbiased ‘determination’.
The founder is a Democrat registered voter. Another team member self identifies as a ‘feminist’ and is a advocate of Bill Gates. Another claims Independent status and the other two seem to have no Google anything… they exist, albeit, barely.
Their Board of Directors, are equally fun to explore with one claiming that – ‘wearing masks is no different than having to wear pants’ – and likens it to nudists parading throughout Starbucks… Really!
Really. These are not your Portland anarchists, these are people who run businesses – and they are decidedly looped into an alternate reality!
Another Board member advocates temperature scanning for all employees everywhere. Another works for a global fund showing a -20+ return so far this year. Ouch!
And yet another board member whose history includes education at Berkeley and Stanford has created a website that would seem to have absolutely ‘no data’ – whoco.com.
Ultimately, bottom line, these people have YUGE partisanship and are trying to create a false media presentation. And that should be – labeled corrupt by the FTC. But it isn’t because there are simply too many fake websites to monitor – and that is how they manage to thrive!
A numbers game!
While the founder, Otero, is obviously a fake propaganda machine, the extent to which these wannabe’s proliferate is astounding! And yet the peddling continues within the classic heading “nonpartisan”. The hit word for Liberal.
By contrast, many conservative sites pronounce their affiliation from the getgo.
“Conservative”. There is no ‘pretense’, no attempt to defraud. Therefore, labeling is simply an ‘agreement’ of what they have already pronounced! By contrast, Ad Fontes is everything aligned Liberal, partisanship, advocating for progressive, green, and feminist agendas! And should be questioned over – false and deceptive advertising.
In the end, it highlights the question; if in fact you are 100% liberal pretending to be non-partisan – why would you not declare your true affinity? Are you afraid? Is your affinity a negative? And why is simple – truth – a foregone platform?
IF you truly believe your Liberal/progressive platform is the perfect storm for the coming America – why would you be afraid to commit to that statement publicly… unless …
Because in the end – if you were truly an honest person, you would not be afraid to say, “ I am a democrat, everything I post leans in that direction, and everyone I hire supports that agenda.”
But you don’t. Instead Ad Fortes Media chooses to pretend they are something they are not even remotely – nonpartisan. And as such their reputation and integrity just tanked into the proverbial – twallete.
