is CLICKBAIT

No one should look to Occupy Democrats for unbiased news reporting. Calling them ‘bias’ is like calling the Moon the Earth’s only permanent natural satellite.

They are very quick to publish Clickbait-y headlines for stories later proven false (which are then removed without fanfare or editorial notice).

Occupy Democrats reported about three counties in Wisconsin admitting to committing voter fraud in favor of President-elect Donald Trump (original link, now removed), which is false — likely the reason for the story’s removal.

They also reported on Bruce Springsteen insulting Trump. This story was originally here (now removed) but now archived in its entirety here. The story was likely removed because the @Boss1949 Twitter account is not the official Bruce Springsteen account.

Original Story, now removed

Original story, now removed from OccupyDemocrats

(The Boss did, however, refer to Trump as a ‘moron’ in a Rolling Stone interview.)

Then you have extremely Clickbait-y headlines like:

Trump’s National Security Pick Is A Deranged Conspiracy Theorist And Fake News Fan

Trump Wants A Wage-Slave Fast Food CEO Millionaire As Labor Secretary

Trump Is Considering A Taliban Sympathizer For Secretary of State

And Occupy Democrats are not above posting Clickbait memes that make up stuff to get their point across, like the oft-debunked Pam Nelson from Texas Voter ID Fraud meme:

We don’t particularly care if this was to counterbalance all the false Right-leaning memes out there, sloppy reporting (and shitty meme-creation) is problematic, no matter which side does it.

    Occupy Democrats is a great way to obtain current and breaking “factually correct” news, quickly and concisely.. Of course the right wing nut, lunatic fringe, below average intelligence, with shit for brains, Nazi racist, women disparaging, tRump supporter, is highly offended by Occupy Democrats. We are all glad that you are..Anyone with any intelligence, (and not the Betsy DeVos kind), knows that the “Groper in Chiefs” clown car of criminal Putin loving cronies, will get prison sentences in the end.

      No Linda, Occupy Democrats isn’t a great way to obtain “factually correct” anything. As a progressive liberal, I’m appalled at how cavalier they are with the truth. The Occupy people don’t really do any reporting on their own, they just copy their news from another source and then sensationalize it and often misrepresent it for the sake of accruing likes and shares on Facebook. If you want good factual honest reporting then go read Mother Jones or TruthDig.
