[THE 40] 'Locality Labs’ sites are almost identical in layout....

Each has the look of a local news organization, with information on gas prices and local businesses.

...

What the sites all have in common is praising Republican politicians, and denigrating Democratic ones.

...

Opinion as news is nothing new. But the appearance of the rightwing-skewed Locality Labs sites, presented as merely local news, has been aided by the demise of the local news industry in America as real local newspapers have shut down in droves, sometimes leading to “news deserts”.

...

The trend has already been documented in television news. The conservative-friendly media firm Sinclair Media Group has spent the last few years buying up local television stations – it currently owns almost 200 across the country.

A 2018 study into Sinclair, by the Emory University political scientists Gregory Martin and Josh McCrain, found that once Sinclair absorbed a new channel, the station’s output quickly changed tone. The newly acquired stations reduce coverage of local news, Martin and McCrain wrote, “and move the ideological tone of coverage in a conservative direction”.

Top fake news sites appear to be CNN and MSNBC, with a decided leftist tone. Not sure what you are looking at.

Instead of equating "left" (meaning anything you don't like) with "fake", you should try for "factual" as a method to determine who is telling you fake stuff our not. Its more realistic than what you are doing.

Not sure how these goobers can claim anything about fake news when they spend all day watching Fox and parroting GOP talking points, but then again self-awareness is something that robots don't have.

Fixed that for you.
