Lack of Reliable Sources

The reader may find that the article, despite the sensationalist heading promising information, provides nothing of the sort. It seemingly regurgitates unfounded allegations without the scantest of proof. Prospective readers will come to their own conclusions but in a general sense may not wish to rely on the piece for any substantive facts. As an informational aside, Newsweek, while at one time considered a credible news outlet, is now in some quarters considered nothing more than a content farm.

This article is a little of a Tweet play-by-play discussing how one Tweet lead to many more. It seems to be pretty accurate though and doesn't take a stance on the issue. I trust the article, but I don't feel like I needed it.

This is another example of taking controversial tweets and trying to make a story out of it. I believe that this could be a newsworthy story if the author had investigated the initial claims and dug deeper into the topic. However, what we see here is more of the same trend, compiling tweets as a way of having enough content to support a story, and outsourcing any investigating to the Twitter universe.

just like the commercial, you got to show us the beef, it is assumed that the US oligarchs are backing the clowns that help them keep their spoils. SUFFER THE FOOLS GLADLY.

While this story is important, this article lacks the context beyond the original tweet. It doesn't give more information to how these fast-food chains are 'supporting Trump's re-election' or even what PACs were donated too. For these, reasons it is surface level and somewhat sensational for just sharing the baseline information.
