Buzzfeed is an American Internet media company based in New York City. The firm is a social news and entertainment company with a focus on digital media. BuzzFeed was founded by Jonah Peretti in 2006 as a viral lab focusing on tracking viral content. It is known to produce “click bait” kind of articles such as “25 Most Awkward Cat Sleeping Positions”. Buzzfeed is known to be sympathetic to the extreme left and promote degenerate causes such as transgenderism, taboo sex topics, and pro-feminist rhetoric. Buzzfeed Australia even wrote an article in 2017 accusing Unshackled’s Senior Editor Damien Ferri of being a far-right extremist and a member of Reclaim Australia after appearing on Q&A.
CNN (Cable News Network) is an American basic cable and satellite television news channel owned by the Turner Broadcasting System, a division of Time Warner. It has been criticised for left-wing bias and has been a focus for Donald Trump regarding fake news. In Trump’s Fake News Awards he mentioned that CNN falsely reported that: both he and his son had access to hacked documents from Wikileaks, and former FBI Director James Comey would dispute President Trump’s claim that he was told he is not under investigation. CNN also edited a video to make it appear President Trump defiantly overfed fish during a visit with the Japanese Prime Minister.
The Guardian is a British daily newspaper that is owned by the Scott Trust. The guardian has an online presence in both the US and Australia that launched in 2011 and 2013. The Guardian seems to hold views that are far-left as they have feminist columnists such as Van Badham, and take a leading role on the SJW front. The Guardian was the worst offender in aslyum seeker coverage, and aims to destroy consevative thought within public life.
ABC (Australian Broadcasting Corporation) is Australia’s national broadcaster that is funded by the Federal Government. The ABC although claiming to be independent and free of bias, has proven to be a far-left think tank that continues to show its hidden agenda. This is evident in programs such as Q&A that have one conservative stacked up against four progressives and the host on the panel, media watch that focuses on attacking conservatives, and late night programs that promote LGBT material.
Fairfax is one of the largest media companies in Australia and New Zealand. It is a left leaning paper than is in direct competition with the right leaning News Corp publications. With papers such as The Sydney Morning Herald and The Age, the Fairfax papers ensure that the Labor & Green parties get plenty of attention, and that anyone right of centre is labelled as a bigot, homophobe, or sexist..
New York Times is an American newspaper based in New York City. It is one of the leading papers that have been critical of the Trump administration. President Trump mentioned in his Fake News Awards that the publication falsely claimed on the front page that the Trump Administration had hidden a climate report.
The Huffington Post is a news website that pretends to be objective but reports with a clear leftist bias. It is one of the many foreign news outlets that have set up an Australian website and joined our never-ending list of leftist online rags. It is also eager to cater for minority and oppressed audiences with sections dedicated to Black, Latino, Asian and Queer voices as well as a women’s and social justice section. Visiting its webpage on any day you would be forgiven that the US is in a constant state of chaos and Australia would be a utopia if it wasn’t for these evil conservatives being so stupid and evil.
Mamamia is the women’s news website founded by Australian media feminist Mia Freidman. Its tagline is what women are talking about which would appear to be mindless celebrity fluff and poor lifestyle and parenting advice. It provided endless daily coverage to currently jailed in Columbia drug smuggler Cassie Sainsbury appearing to buy into her story of innocence. It of course buys into the feminist myths and likes to show its solidarity with the feminist sisterhood. It of course engages in its fair degree of man hatred with portraying men as sexual predators who should not be left alone with children.
MSNBC tried for a number of years to be the left-wing version of Fox News employing pundits like Ed Shultz, Keith Olbermann and Melissa Harris-Perry. After failing in the ratings for many years it decided to turn back to reporting hard news but has also failed at that. It has been following the Trump derangement syndrome of the rest of the US media led by its Morning Joe hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski. Scarborough was once a Republican congressman but in 2016 became a never Trumper and his show has become one of leading anti-Trump platforms on television. One of the remaining liberals at the network Rachel Maddow claimed she had the scoop of the year in Trump’s tax returns but all they revealed was that he earned a lot of money and paid a lot of tax.
Junkee describes itself as a pop culture news website though has now got into the business of political commentary. Its news articles parrot the standard leftist talking points and campaigns on social justice issues such as same sex marriage and changing Australia Day. However it also adopts the abusive language of the left and gleeful reports of leftists displaying their typical bullying tactics. After same sex marriage passed it glowingly reported how ‘eat shit Lyle’ was trending on Twitter and how Margaret Court was abused at her own arena. It was also very triggered by the True Blue Crew Victorian crime crisis meeting which they think the whole issue is racist fake news and called the crew Nazis. It also didn’t like Triple M deciding to fill the gap in the market for Australia Day music with its Ozzest 100 and has called the day a celebration of violence.
