A journalism watchdog has been forced to scrap a list of unreliable news sources because, as it turns out, the list wasnt reliable.
The Poynter Institute, a journalism nonprofit organization, initially released a list of more than 500 unreliable news outlets purportedly built from pre-existing databases compiled by journalists, fact-checkers and researchers around the country.
But a number of prominent conservative-leaning outlets were included in the unreliable category, including The Washington Examiner, Washington Free Beacon, Daily Caller and other publications that employ scores of journalists covering Congress, elections, the White House and more. The index was created with the help of an employee for the Southern Poverty Law Center.

These people are dangerous and hate America .
Whoever The Poynter Institute used to hire that help, to compile the list, needs to be asked why he/she would knowingly consider hiring an employee of The Southern Poverty Law Center....puts the PI in question.
