Zero Hedge is a financial, underground-alternative, conservative media blog, which doesn't shrink from perspectives censored by the commercially-controlled media. It was included in the original 2016 PropOrNot list of 200 "Fake News" websites and has been consistently one of the most popular sites on that list.
Many of the Zero Hedge writers write under the pseudonym 'Tyler Durden'. Contributing editors offer a regular selection of articles to the site. Several contributing editors, who formerly promoted and supported Donald Trump during the 2016 US election, daily debunking insane, over-the-top attacks from corporate media which all proved almost conveniently false, have now switched almost universally to promoting Progressive-Democrat, Tulsi Gabbard 2020 Campaign, with virtually zero vetting of her campaign to expose her hypocrisy, flip-flopping and ties to the Council on Foreign Relations, as they did for Trump in the 2016 Election cycle. Often more can be learned, simply reading the comments section at the bottom of any article, than from the articles themselves. Regulars do a good job debunking poorly researched or overly biased articles, along with offering links to other interesting sources/sites. Since anyone may register to comment, the site has seen an influx of trolls, in recent years, possibly from intelligence agencies, along with bad actors promoting links to computer viruses. Site commentators do a good job identifying regular offenders.
Site bias leans mega-bear, constantly threatening the end of world, daily predicting an 'Armageddon' that never comes to pass and has a dismal record on stock market predictions as well. Zero Hedge has been a widow-maker in bad market calls since 2011, although they occasionally make a spectacular call that proves right, so one shouldn't simply dismiss all financial-news articles. Site leans "apolitical" and will attack any candidate or politician for corruption, but leans towards conservative-populism.

A Quote by Zero Hedge
|PropOrNot||“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.”||25 January 2018|
