Correct, I will try to look at their connections but this country is under siege big time. For those who are working who rely on the lying Russian owned MSM and lying bull sheet organizations like poynter.

So I just checked, and CNN is not on the list. Therefore this list is completely and totally meaningless because if ever there was an unreliable source, it was CNN.

Because no one should be leaking anything without placing the proper spin on things first. Can't have the every day person finding out information on their own, from multiple sources, and coming to their own conclusions. We must be spoon-fed our opinions directly from the MSM.

Why they have conspiracy and satire listed as reasons for removal shows their hand pretty well, they can't handle speculation or mockery of what they deem to be the narrative.

Hey, we made the top 10 in website's that piss off Liberals.
We must be doing something right.

The list is alphabetical.

The problem with that is that ATS is not a news site. It's a site where we discuss the news. That says to me they don't even vet their own list.

About George Soros

George Soros launched his philanthropic work in South Africa in 1979. Since then he has given over $32 billion to fund the Open Society Foundations, which work in over 100 countries around the world

Link to above about Open Society.

IRS Complaint Filed against Poynter.

If the IRS finds that Poynter misappropriated or co-mingled funds, violated its mission statement, failed to adhere to the wishes of its founder Nelson Poynter or participated in political activity, the Institute would be on the hook for back taxes and penalties. In addition, its status as a 501(c)(3) charitable organization would be revoked.

Just as embarrassingly, the Times endorsed Justin Bean in a St. Petersburg city council race. Bean possessed the thinnest resumé of the eight candidates and a lengthy arrest record but he’s a registered Republican who attended Donald Trump’s inauguration.

That was in 2017 and oddly enough it was supposedly about them being in the tank for Republicans. They supported a candidate which they can't do under their tax status.

You can't make this stuff up.

Because they retracted the list

Journalism nonprofit Poynter has retracted a long list of supposedly unreliable news websites, admitting the list itself was unreliable - a fact ironically brought to its attention by several of the outlets it calls untrustworthy.

It is very clever bc it fools the idiots/majority. They just need someone telling them 'THIS IS FALSE DON't LOOK AT THIS!' and they don't even get suspicious or curious anymore. They are so tired and maybe anxious they just say okay thanks for keeping me safe and lazy. #ing sad
