What makes you credible? Are you a "Fake" News Site?
Established in 2009, we are one of the original "news curators" of the World Wide Web. We carefully hand-select from good sources and exhibit it for the enrichment of the Independent thinking news consumer. Credibility for RedFlagNews.com comes from consistency, professionalism, great content, and accuracy. We are not perfect. With all the sites on the web, sometimes we can get bamboozled. If at any time a news story we curate is found to be completely false or misleading, the story will be removed and the original source blacklisted.
Several self-described "Truth" or "Watchdog" websites have blacklisted RedFlagNews.com as a hoax, fake, satire and/or click bait website. This is absolutely not the case, and is patently false. We strongly encouraged all our readers (and skeptics) to research the individuals/corporations behind these "watchdog" websites, and the ideologies involved. Currently, we are in the process of aggressive litigation against these websites for defamation as well as additional serious charges.
If at anytime you believe a story to be false or misleading, please contact us directly with the title and link so we can promptly review. In addition, we strongly encourage you to contact the original author/source, which can be clearly found at the top and bottom of EVERY post on this website.
Do you have an app?
Yes! More than 400,000 readers use our mobile app, primarily for PUSH Notifications. You can download it here.
Who reads your website?
Our story is a true grassroots effort born from the Tea Party Movement that continues to grow organically and prove to be a wise choice for those looking to expand their news experience.
Because we are clearly focused on political news and opinion, and the multiple tangents the Internet offers, our audience is conveniently focused, yet broad within its borders. RedFlag News is popular with bloggers, 'high-information voters', Pinterest and Facebook users — an increasingly influential demographic — together with:
- early adopters of sites like Drudge Report, Breitbart and Huffington Post;
- more than half of the United States Congress;
- news junkies like ourselves;
- journalists and nationally syndicated talk radio hosts;
- super PACs and political campaigns;
- members of the Independent, Libertarian, Conservative, and Tea Party movements.
A majority of our visitors come to our site to find the latest in breaking news and opinion that are "Red Flagged". Our audience is completely devoted to and immersed in what the Independent movement has to offer. They are concerned Americans who are highly engaged, activism minded and thoroughly aware of current events. 97% share and connect with RedFlag News via social media and the official RedFlag app. 67% of RedFlag readers visit the website daily, or multiple times a day, and 30% visit weekly.
Are you a radical right wing website as the MSM wants me to believe?
Not at all. RedFlag News may be considered conservative in tone, though the sources cited and linked run the gamut of political leanings. Our mission is to use the latest communications tools to disseminate "Red Flagged" information as quickly as possible, yet provide a statesmanlike environment for political discussion and education, where people can look at the wide scope of theories and opinions, trade comments with people of widely varying views and feelings, and be educated and informed.
How are you different from sites like Drudge Report or similar news aggregators?
We have been described as "the Apple of news aggregation" and we're growing like crazy. As evidenced by the amazing growth in the droves who are questioning their own long-held party affiliations and who now declare themselves as Independents, the public have arrived at a point at which they’re open to, even hungering for, the direction and knowledge that RedFlag News can bring.
We recognize that while certain aspects of RedFlag News can be duplicated by other websites and news groups, there are no sites that can compete with our unique perspective of news reporting with a clean and clear presentation of that news together with no corporate funding or political connections. In other words, integrity that can't be bought.
How do you use any monies raised by your readers?
Let's face it, running a website can be expensive. There are hosting fees, design fees, legal fees, salaries and other expenses, and they add up fast! Contributions by our readers make a world of difference for the sustainability of this growing website.

How are you funded? Are you connected to any Super PAC?
- We are a private organization. We have received no funding from any entity or paid advertising other than our advertising partners, and have been completely independent of all media organizations and Super PACs.
- RedFlag News is powered by a passionate individual named J.R. Elliott who contributes many unpaid hours away from his own family and career to bring the news to you.
- Since June 1, 2009, we have raised a little over $20,000 through PayPal. For the purpose of expanding our user experience/reach via apps and other technologies, a major push for CrowdFunding or a trusted partner are now being explored.
