A National Public Radio investigation has uncovered evidence that the majority of ‘fake news’ websites are run by a Democratic organization in California called “Disinfomedia”.
The NPR investigation found that the “godfather” of fake news is a Democrat based in Culver City, California, who runs a multitude of the most prominent fake news sites on the web, aimed at discrediting the alternative media.
NPR’s Laura Sydell described the process of tracking down fake news sites — many of which had names and formats designed to look like real news websites — and discovering many that led to one company in particular:
The sites include NationalReport.net, USAToday.com.co, WashingtonPost.com.co. All the addresses linked to a single rented server inside Amazon Web Services. That meant they were all likely owned by the same company. Jansen found an email address on one of those sites and he was able to link that address to a name: Jestin Coler.
