I use this a way to flag news stories that should be read with a critical eye.

I'm researching/analyzing Russian propaganda for my masters, this happens to be very useful and pretty spot on. However, because I often have to read those websites, the YYYs get a little bit annoying. I wish there was a way to temporarily desactivate it, or have the option to highlight insted. Also, the add-on doesn't make the distinction between a link to, say, http://endingthefed.com/ and the other link http://whois.domaintools.com/endingthefed.com All in all, this is promising.

Reminds me of what the Scientologists did to their followers back when they were having them put up "personal websites". They sent them software and told them it would safeguard their online experience. Except, it didn't let them see anything. Censorship - OF ANY KIND - is bad. If PropOrNot really wanted to be useful instead of controlling they would have offered free classes on how to spot opinions from news. Guess the money and prestige is all they think about, eh? Now to go delete this ter... Show more

I don't know what I think about the plugin yet so middle of the road is ***. That said, I wanted to post this link for Timothy Chase about the origins of rt.com: http://whois.domaintools.com/rt.com It includes this information: "Registrant Name: ANO TV-Novosti Registrant Organization: ANO TV-Novosti Registrant Street: Bldg.3, Borovaya St. Registrant City: Moscow Registrant State/Province: Registrant Postal Code: 111020"

There are a lot of one star ratings for this add-in, almost as if there is a campaign to give this as low a rating as possible. There are also a few comments where people are saying they love the add-in because what it flags (mostly Russian propaganda, oftentimes offered through repeaters rather than initial sources, where the repeaters are not necessarily aware of their role in propagating propaganda) is exactly what they think is worth reading. Then they give it a one star. Or someone ... Show more

First, this Russian propaganda problem is much bigger than people realize. It's going to persist and follow areas with the most political activity. We just had an onslaught in the USA, now it's going to focus on European elections this year in an effort to elect more Putin-friendly leaders. This is a simple plugin that only flags links to suspect sites. If the site commonly reprints, rewords, or links to known Russian propaganda, it gets marked. IT DOES NOT CENSOR ANYTHING. It only offers th... Show more

Well, you can pretty much figure out that these are the sites you *should* be visiting! Sure, there are some right-wing sources, but there are some serious gems here. This is nothing more than a propaganda tool to keep you from finding out information that is being held back by the MSM! I asked my Mom to stop watching CNN because they're aren't covering the protests of the Dakota Access Pipeline, and she and my other relatives are starting to realize that you can't count on the MSM anymore...
