Spooky. The group uses a US flag and is quick to label websites (such as this one) Russian Propaganda. It is critical of anyone who are not aligned the US establishment. PropOrNot has refused to identify themselves.The Washington Post described them as “an independent team of concerned American citizens.” George H. Elias claimed in May 2018 that the group was a project of the Atlantic Council and that "Michael Weiss and company are the people behind Propornot".
Owing to the evident absurdity of the accusations made against the websites on its list, there is a tendency to dismiss PropOrNot as similarly absurd. But that is to miss its key role in NATO propaganda methodology. It is also to miss the potential for thoroughly nasty freelancing by its main NGO contractors and their employers.
Here is an introduction to a definitive unmasking of Propornot from January 2018:
“In this article, you'll meet some of the people staffing Propornot. You'll meet the people and publications that provide their expenses and cover the logistics. You'll meet a few of the deep state players. We'll deal with them very soon. They need to see this as the warning shot over the bow and start playing nice with regular people. After that, you'll meet the NGO's that are funding and orchestrating all of it.”

Propornot's claim that the websites on its list were outlets of "Russian propaganda" is an interesting invocation of a cold war image. This pitted the Western "free world" lead by the USA against the USSR's Eastern "Evil Empire" which promoted totalitarian communism rather than "free market" capitalism. This same mentality is reflected in Wikipedia's policy of having a blacklist of "unreliable" websites (including this one). Anything said by any site on the list can be deemed "unreliable", even if backed by a lot of otherwise compelling evidence. The Wikispooks way, by contrast is to focus primarily on the real world evidence - avoiding both blind trust in and uncritical rejection of whoever is presenting it.
