Gustavus Adolphus College Guide Lists Conservative Websites as ‘Fake News’

, Spencer Irvine, 1 Comment

Conservative websites are ‘fake news’ and not trustworthy news sources, while liberal-leaning ones are reputable sources. Doesn’t that sound partial and unfair? Well, that’s what a new guide tells students at Gustavus Adolphus College:

The guide includes a chart created by Vanessa Otero, a patent attorney, that organizes news sites based on their “partisan bias” and their “journalistic quality.”

The Daily Caller, The Blaze, and Red State are all listed as “conservative utter garbage/conspiracy theories” on the partisan scale and “sensational or clickbait” on the quality scale.

This categorization puts them in the “Just no” bubble, alongside Infowars and Breitbart.

Meanwhile, far-left websites such as Slate and Vox are considered to “skew liberal” but also receive a “complex” rating on the quality scale, putting them on the same level as The Hill and The Wall Street Journal as “great in-depth sources of news.”
