Racist, misogynic assholes (even including the "Sarah Palin of Gamergate", fake gamer and pathological woman-hater Milus Yiannopoulos) write their bullshit here.

The site doesn't have viruses, but that is the only positive statement I can make regarding it. Regardless of partisanship, it has been found to be culpable in several scandals, including maliciously editing a video to alter a speech made by Shirley Sherrod, the former Georgia State Director of Rural Development for the USDA, to appear that she made racist comments about a white man, which led to her firing. The video was later found to have been edited, and Sherrod was offered another position. Another recent scandal was Breitbart's defense of Donald Trump instead of one of their own reporters regarding the battery charge by Michelle Fields against Corey Lewandowski. Former writers for the site, including well known conservative writer Ben Shapiro have noted that its direction under Andrew Breitbart's successor Stephen Bannon has completely changed, writing "Andrew built his life and his career on one mission: fight the bullies. But Andrew’s life mission has been betrayed. Indeed, Breitbart News, under the chairmanship of Steve Bannon, has put a stake through the heart of Andrew’s legacy. In my opinion, Steve Bannon is a bully, and has sold out Andrew’s mission in order to back another bully, Donald Trump; he has shaped the company into Trump’s personal Pravda…the facts are undeniable: Breitbart News has become precisely the reverse of what Andrew would have wanted. Steve Bannon and those who follow his lead should be ashamed of themselves."

Breitbart is an infamously right-wing news site. While the site is safe to visit, the content (or misinformation) should be avoided. There are much better conservative media sites out there.

I haven't yet seen any 'false information' that anyone on here has purported, but there is definitely a lack of neutrality in the wording of articles. The site is safe and still more accurate than much of the content from the 'Big Six' media groups.

Merely a conservative-oriented #news website. As with any news outlet, read it with a grain of salt.

This is a conservative American politics news website. It is safe in that it doesn't have malware, viruses, or phishing. Content wise, it has some extreme opinions relating to America, including anti-immigration views.

This site purports to be an objective news site. I wouldn't normally have marked it down, except that its clearly so full of slanderous conspiratorial political views with so many factual inaccuracies that its obvious purpose is to disseminate disinformation. In other words, its a propaganda box that works in a similar way to ISIS hate preachers.

This is a nationalist hate site which willfully spreads unsubstantiated information to foster ethnic hatred. This is "conservative" in the same way Stormfront is. To put it into perspective, I grabbed just a handful of quotes from the comment section on a single article, in which they falsely attributed quotes to a Muslim woman without any sources or evidence, to demonstrate how hateful this site really is: "Long past fed up. I wouldn't shed a tear if half the middle east was reduced to a glass parking lot." "They could just line the sidewalks with bacon to keep the scum away." "Just like the typical liberal, their Violent Ideology always slips through." "Muslims won't even have to do anything Their left wing liberal pets will do it for them Traitors" So aside from slandering an individual formally, the inspired comments included calls ranging from ethnic genocide to implicit race-traitor arguments. This isn't just a 'right-wing' website; please avoid if you are not a neo-nazi; please still distrust, if you are

Visitors Beware!: Don't be fooled by breitbart.com's current favorable rating! They are social media experts who have gamed the system. breitbart.com has a hidden agenda and should not be trusted. It's being paid for by you know who. I'm putting myself at risk here because I could potentially be silenced or sued but I need to let you guys know what we are dealing with here. This website obviously engages in disseminating information that props up one of the very powerful people in America who claims he is being victimized by the mainstream media. Whether you like it or not, breitbart.com produces false reports and openly distorts the claims of its sources. It uses unreliable sources, to "verify" its statements. SAD BUT TRUE! Now, believe me, as soon as more folks see my rating, you're going to see more paid for pro-breitbart.com ratings coming this way and there's not a lot we can do. I wouldn't trust anything that this dishonest site posts and strongly encourages others to seek a less biased source.

Not much to add to the other negative comments. This is a site for delusional teabaggers (yes, I know that's an oxymoron).

Your typical right wing news site full of bigotry and misinformation. Some questionable ad choices included a nude woman and a ticket clinic.

Regardless of your political affiliation, this website should not be trusted. It engages in disseminating disinformation and false reports and openly distorts the claims of its sources, or uses unreliable sources, to "verify" its statements. I wouldn't trust anything that this dishonest site posts and strongly encourages others to seek a less biased source. The site is probably safe for your computer, but its content is on-par with conspiracy theory websites and hate sites.

Breitbart? Far-rightbart more like. Full of xenophobic claptrap and untruthful stories, such as this one: http://www.breitbart.com/london/2015/06/08/exclusive-uk-water-park-hosts-muslim-only-days-with-extremist-linked-group/ Which has absolutely no basis in fact: http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/home-news/edl-to-protest-britains-biggest-water-park-for-hosting-muslimonly-days--except-it-doesnt-10310438.html

Decent website. Has some trackers but what site doesn't these days? Yeah, it's a conservative site so it presents a lot of stuff from that POV. I would argue it's a conservative version of a lot of liberal news websites. From what I've seen Breitbart.com doesn't engage in hit pieces or just plain making stuff up. I haven't been reading the site long enough to go all the way green with "I trust" but I won't go beyond "be cautious" with if it's suitable for children since some of their terrorism reporting is extremely graphic and even more graphic links can sometimes be found in the comments section. I don't think children need to see images of severed heads, videos of people being burned alive or the aftermath of a bullet to the head. You might not like their opinion section or the opinion of the authors who write for the site but it's not pure propaganda masquerading as facts. Does it have a slant? Sure, but you knew that when you accessed the site, the same way you know the Daily Kos, Mother Jones or Salon have a liberal slant. If you're a hard-core liberal you'll hate the site. If you're a middle of the road liberal you might not like it. But hey if you don't like it, don't read it.

It may be true that this is "just another conservative" website, but the disinformation, half-truths and straight out lies that are spouted here to further an agenda, should make any conservative blush.
