Quiz answers

Here is the verdict on each.


http://www.malepregnancy.com/

completely bogus!     The cover for Time has no date.  No mailing address anywhere on the web site.  Wouldn't you have heard it on the news if men were now giving birth? 

http://www.dhmo.org/ 

completely bogus!     Nothing on the site is an outright lie.  They just don't disclose the fact that dihydrogen monoxide is another name for water.

http://www.cis.org/ 

admits their bias     Their mission statement is essentially honest in admitting "The Center is animated by a pro-immigrant, low-immigration vision which seeks fewer immigrants but a warmer welcome for those admitted."

http://www.marshall.org/ 

does not admit their bias     They are dishonest in saying "Our mission is to encourage the use of sound science in making public policy about important issues for which science and technology are major considerations."  Everything on their site relating to global warming is hostile to the theory.  They are not interested at all in sound science.  Their only interest is in policy.

http://www.wto.org/

legitimate     This actually is the home page for the World Trade Organization.

http://www.gatt.org/ 

protest site   The domain name for GATT (General Agreement on Trades and Tariffs) was gotten to first by people who object to the policies of the World Trade Organization.  They duplicate the look of the WTO web site, but the content is all their own.

http://www.thedogisland.com/ 

completely bogus!     There is no such place.  But you don't have to tell your dog that.

http://www.martinlutherking.org/ 

Um, did you happen to notice that they are white supremacists?     At the very bottom the link says "Hosted by Stormfront" which then takes you to a page with a banner which reads "White Pride World Wide."  Perhaps white supremacists should not be trusted to provide reliable information on Martin Luther King.
