Deranged Harvard Professor Smears All Independent Media As ‘Fake News’

Fact checked
Harvard professor calls all independent media outlets 'fake news'

A far-left professor at Harvard University claims that all independent media websites that don’t subscribe to far-left ideology must be considered ‘fake news’ by default. 

A list of ‘fake news’ sites has been given to students at Harvard University, with the instruction that they study the list and make a note of the almost 1,000 independent, conservative, and center-right websites listed and ensure they are never circulated online.

According to professor Melissa Zimdars, sites such as Your News Wire, Breitbart, InfoWars, and the Drudge Report should all be banned from the internet due to their counter-narrative of mainstream liberal outlets such as Buzzfeed and CNN – a “crime” she says worthy of censorship. reports:

The Daily Caller, The Drudge Report, Breitbart News, The Washington Examiner, The Washington Free Beacon, Independent Journal Review (IJR), The Blaze and The Weekly Standard are all on the list, deemed illegitimate for reasons such as “clickbait,” “bias,” or “unreliable.”

Liberal news sources like BuzzFeed, The Washington Post, The Huffington Post, and Salon aren’t on the list.

The list, compiled by Merrimack College associate professor Melissa Zimdars, is recommended to students as part of a Harvard library guide on “Fake News, Misinformation, and Propaganda.”

The list is linked under a banner titled, “Identifying Fake News Sites.” A comment next to the link calls the document a “Huge list of fake news sites.”

As previously reported, liberal journalists have struggled to come up with a concise definition of “fake news,” even as they declare war on it.

Some liberal journalists have lumped in legitimate news organizations with objectively false websites, leading to concerns that a crackdown on “fake news” will be used by liberals to silence their conservative counterparts.

As previously reported by The Daily Caller, data shows that, despite a media freak-out, fake news websites actually struggle to reach any sort of real audience.

The Harvard University library did not immediately return TheDC’s request for comment.


  1. If a company doesn’t think exactly like another company or group then it is fake ? You must be joking, because every news organization has an agenda that is dictated by the CEO. We should have news organizations just stick to reporting news & let the public decide.

  2. Pretty soon, NOT attending Harvard will be a prerequisite to engaging in any reality/reason-based endeavour.

  3. Its good they gave the kids that list…gives them the opportunity to discover their options….. and debate those options and opinions amongst themselves… God uses all things for good for those that love him and are called according to his purpose… even some left wing dillusioned new world kids.. don’t underestimate the power and workings of the Holy Spirit… he changed me… he can change them too
