11. I Wouldn't Put Too Much Stock in This

First of all, the layout of the website is horrible. I have a large monitor and weak eyes, so I make the text on the screen larger than most people. This has never been a problem until I opened this site. 2/3 of the headline disappears off to the left of the screen. This is horrendously bad design.

Second, there is no header. No "Home," "About Us," "Contact," or anything else you would see on any legitimate website.

Third, I went to who.is and looked up vice.com. It is owned and operated by Perfect Privacy LLC in Jacksonville, FL. It is apparently a company that shows you how to protect your privacy on the internet. There's nothing wrong with that, but their homepage smacks of the kind of company that sponsors hate radio along with gold sellers and male enhancement drugs.

The whole outfit screams "Shady! Scammers!" and, of course, "fake news."

On the plus side, it looks like the Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism is real and legitimate. And it does not look at the left with the nearly the same stink eye that vice news does.
