I googled a famous movie director after learning he had died. This site came up in the top ten. Every other site (including page after page of reputable news sources) reported the suicide of this director, who - in front of eye witnesses - jumped from a bridge. This website - whose article was framed to appear as a news story - proclaimed the famous director was “Murdered After Mocking Illuminati.” I have no problem with websites containing conspiracy theories, as long as they are qualified as such. Though, to me, these are generally wildly biased with an incredible dearth of rational thought or compelling (or even not compelling) evidence, I’m happily willing to stretch the meaning of the word “theory” far beyond its scientific definition, to include the kind of conspiracy content contained on this website. Whether I agree or disagree with the views expressed therein, I cannot abide a media source - ANY such source, whether something this niche and small, or a giant news outlet - purporting as fact that which is, at BEST, conjecture based on the broadest definition of circumstantial evidence, and at worst, intentional fear-mongering. The largest demographic for websites like this one? Mentally ill adults. Second largest? Kids. This last paragraph is written in the same style as “beforeitsnews.com,” but I’d bet on my theory over any of their’s in a heartbeat.

This site promotes every wacky, idiotic conspiracy, alternative witch doctor "medicine", pseudoscience theory out there. It seems to be actively spreading and promoting all kinds of mental illness. It also comes up with a virus warning from McAfee's web scanning browser add-in.

Most of these stories are hyped, speculative nonsense. None of this should be trusted.

Bizarre and dangerous site. Conspiracy theories, dodgy "science" articles, alternative medicine weirdness and more. Pseudo-science, quackery and woo is what they are selling and it's a menace to public health and safety. They HATE vaccination with a passion - every lie and canard of the anti-vax lunatic fringe gets a run here. AVOID.

I don't know whether it's actually harmful or not cause I hear a lot of contracting ideas from you guys. I do check it out on norton online security website and it appears to be good. Here is the link http://safeweb.norton.com/report/show?url=http%3A%2F%2Fbeforeitsnews.com%2F I don't have ad popups . It seems good as many ratings indicate.

SiteAdvisor says it's malicious. https://www.siteadvisor.com/sites/beforeitsnews.com So does VirusTotal. https://www.virustotal.com/en/url/bf70721ba0299a6c530053809c095fb0ac098a5f602b58ef67ab7f951c5b79bc/analysis/

Regularly blocked by Google Safe Browsing ("Of the 5076 pages we tested on the site over the past 90 days, 240 page(s) resulted in malicious software being downloaded and installed without user consent"). Actual content isn't that reliable either - it's a "citizen journalism" blog site. Plenty of interesting writing, but more than a few spammers and far-out conspiracy theorists who the site mods don't seem too bothered about moderating.
