ATS is awash with bad sourcing and a chronic lack of members to critically assess they highly questionable sources they do use. Many suffer from
extreme confirmation bias, they develop a predetermined believe such as “The NWO are killing our cats” and then will find sources that back up
these claims that might range from wiki, YouTube to Info wars if they can find a MSN source as well that will do to.
They are grossly inconsistent, on the one hand the MSN, academics, eye witnesses and anything official such as NGO and governmental reports and
unreliable as they are all “in on it” or in some way “bias”. Yet as soon as these same sources legitimise their already predetermined believe
in some way they are treated as gospel.
ATS members always post what they want, “evidence” is cherry picked and nobody bothers to critically assess or substantiate these “sources”
with something more credible and independent.
It’s a joke really that a bunch of people so oblivious to the errors of their sourcing often regard themselves what I like to call the
“intellectual elite” of the internet, in truth they are no better than any tabloid rag. That is probably why they will use them so willingly
