Overall Analysis
Trust Markers: 
Clickable author, professional-looking website, 16 sources
Mistrust Markers: 
The first source has been debunked. The second source says nothing definitively, while this article spins the quotes in a way that makes them sound definitive. A quote in the third source reads "it's 'premature to reach any conclusion,'" while this article seems to do just that. A few sources later, this article definitively uses data that was extrapolated from an 8-year old study. The pattern of suspicious sources/use of sources continues. Some clickbait ads are present.
Trust Rank (1 = high mistrust, 5 = high trust): 
Reason for Trust Rank: 

If there is some truth in this article, it seems to be few and far between.


How does an international news source that's been around since the early 2000's, that otherwise features well-written articles, not seem to have any quality control



Wow. Looking at the format of the website format, this history of the organisation and the bio provided on the website I would assume this source reliable. The Epoch Times have a physical headquarters, paid staff, a physical publication and is published internationally. Infact, nothing about this article indicates that its fake. Except the content. Like Benny said, this article is making a claim on virtually no evidence. I looked into the background of the Epoch Times to see if I could find out why this article was so off from reality. The Epoch Times was started in 2000 in NY. The paper has strong connections to China and covers a lot of content about human rights violations in China. Its is anti communist. I wasn't able to find a motive for the Epoch Times to skew facts about voter fraud in the 2016 election. This source has kinda baffled me because of its lack of motive. Is it just really bad reporting? Does anyone one else have thoughts about this?
