A shocking investigation by Axios published on Thursday found that Democrat operatives are running 51 ‘fake news’ websites under the guise of local news organizations.

The company running the sites, Local Report Inc. receives its content from The American Independent, an organization run by Democratic operatives and founded by David Brock, who is also the founder of Media Matters, a far-left pressure group that tries to ‘cancel’ Republican politicians and activists.

The organization’s websites pepper in politically biased stories with reports about the weather and local news, according to the Axios investigation.

The group claims that its mission is to bring ‘local, fact-based news’ back to cities across the country.

The Axios investigation found multiple instances of sloppy reporting, where hit pieces were written about Republican candidates who were not given a request for comment or a chance to respond.


The American Independent’s leadership team is filled with left-wing operatives, including the executive editor,  Jessica McCreight, who was a part of President Barack Obama’s communications team.

The Daily Mail Reports

A liberal political media operation being run out of Washington, D.C., and Florida is pushing left-wing stories in 51 different fake news outlets in order to influence the outcome of the November midterm elections, it is claimed.

The allegations came in a shocking new investigation from Axios that was published on Thursday.

The report alleges that in the past 12 months, multiple new ‘news’ website have appeared across the country, all run by a company named Local Report Inc.

They do report a wide variety of stories – but sprinkled throughout are news items pushing Democrat lawmakers and policies.

Online records show that the Local Report was founded in Tallahassee, Fla.

A user has to scroll down to find an article accusing the Dairy State’s Republican gubernatorial candidate Tim Michels of accepting donations from anti-LGBTQ organizations.

The biased articles make no mention of attempts to reach the state’s Republican Party or the gubernatorial campaigns of those in question for comment.
