Quit Bad Journalism

Overview

Block access to websites whose business model relies on bad, trashy or hateful journalism

This Chrome Extension blocks particular websites to prevent you from helping them get money and spread their poor quality journalism. Are there other sites which you don't agree with and want to block? You can add custom URLs/RegExp through the extension's options. Just so you don't get fully locked into some kind of echo chamber, there is a link to allow one to access the blocked page. Why? Lots of businesses and websites big and small make their money by selling advertising space. It's important for them to produce and/or publish content that attracts viewers. Some of these publishing entities exercise a significant lack of journalistic integrity — nee, even a disheartening absence of respect for the general public — and present a form of content as polluting and rotten as '80s Troma-grade nuclear waste on society. Obviously, each person to their own tastes. However, if you are an individual that wants to be a little more proactive in reducing the revenue these poor taste websites make, Quit Bad Journalism is a tool to catch and warn against the dangers of clickbait, tabloids, fake news and alternative facts.

I will try and fix this! Meanwhile, do you only visit the Daily Mail and The Sun's websites? Does that constitute your whole internet?
