Approximately 51 sites have emerged since 2021 with names such as the Milwaukee Metro Times, the Mecklenburg Herald, and the Tri-City Record, according to an Axios article published Thursday.

“The sites are focused on key swing states with elections in 2021 and 2022: Arizona, Colorado, Georgia, Michigan, New Hampshire, Nevada, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Wisconsin,” the report said, adding that the sites feature stories about local happenings along with news promoting Democrat midterm candidates while targeting Republicans.

The sites are reportedly all managed by a company called Local Report, Inc., and all appear to be connected to the American Independent (TAI), which was “launched by Democratic operative and fundraiser David Brock — also known for founding the left-leaning media watchdog Media Matters for America,” per Axios.

The outlet noted that several TAI writers have reportedly contributed to the sites.

In addition, Jessica McCreight is the Vice President and executive editor of the TAI. She worked in communications in the White House during Barack Obama’s presidency, the Daily Caller reported.

According to McCreight, the relationship between TAI and Local Report is a “co-publishing agreement.”

In July 2020,, a “news outlet” created and funded by Acronym, a Democrat-aligned nonprofit, spent millions to flood Facebook with ads prior to the 2020 election, but reportedly did not share information about its political donors. shelled out over $1 million on social media ads to promote House Democrats.

Breitbart News reported in March 2020 that “Acronym owns the technology firm Shadow, Inc., which was responsible for developing the infamous app used in the chaotic Iowa caucuses.”

The outlet continued:Acronym is funded by the “liberal dark money group” New Venture Fund, which is “part of a larger group called Arabella Advisors, which provides philanthropic guidance and manages four nonprofits,” according to the nonpartisan ethics watchdog group Americans for Public Trust. Those also include the Sixteen Thirty Fund, Windward Fund, and Hopewell Fund.

The financial web, however, goes far beyond those connections. The political group American Bridge, which was founded by David Brock — a close ally of the Clintons and founder of Media Matters for America — is also involved in the overarching efforts to spread misinformation on President Trump’s response to the coronavirus and further politicize the crisis.

Per the Axios article, Local Report stories offer news coverage their political allies may use for their own purposes.

    How is this any different than Fox news, OANN, Newsmax or even Breitbart? In 2020 there were a bunch of these small “local” sties run by and favoring republicans and the democrats pointed that out in the same way you are now.

    I personally find all this tit-for-tat childish, their goal is to have an “us versus them” mentally. To drive a wedge between you and your neighbor. To make it so there is fighting in the streets over lies from the fake news sites. If you can think outside of the box for a minute, what will happen? The military will get involved to keep people “safe”, then comes the changes. Curfews, long lines for food, water, fuel, etc… Your neighbor will rat you out for an extra slice of bread and so forth. I hope I’m wrong but this looks like the way it’s heading. Take a look at other countries around the world and see what’s happening there and ask yourself, could this happen here?

    People, try thinking for yourselves, don’t let all this fake news make you vote for some asshat. If you really want change, get your information from multiple websites, even ones you don’t agree with to see both sides. I have found that CNN does not cover things that don’t support their agenda but Fox will cover that story and vicea-versa. If you get all your information from just one right or left leaning site, you are falling into the trap that they have set for you. Research the candidates and vote for the one you think is best, while you still can…
