Don't Feed the Propaganda / Faux News Websites

How do we bring political discourse back to a place of civility if we cannot even stand on a foundation of truth? Conserve energy, don't feed into the frenzy by wasting your time with propaganda websites that profit off of this hyper-political reality with click-bait headlines. Certainly not complete, but a good place to start, here is a list of websites that have been identified as distributing faux news targeting liberals. Evaluate for yourself, let us know if you disagree or think others should be added.
  1. Occupy Democrats
  2. Bipartisan Report
  3. Winning Democrats
  4. PoliticusUSA
  5. Blue Nation Review
  6. IfYouOnlyNews
  7. USUncut
  8. The Freethought Project
  9. Addicting Info
  10. LiberalAmerica
  11. Newslo
  12. Politicalo*
  13. DailyNewsBin
  14. American News X
  15. Being Liberal
  16. The Other 98%
* almost anything that ends on lo; these sites specialize in taking accurate statements from politicians and then adding false quotes to them that are much worse than what they actually said
