ThunderySleep t1_itacrd3 wrote is a newly created propaganda spam site disguised as an existing local news journal. The site was created in late 2021 (this election cycle) using a WYSIWYG plug-in for wordpress and really crumby hosting. No one involved in this site is a professional in any capacity, hence the use of a WYSIWYG.

The site doesn't even make the three pages on google for "local news bucks county pa".

It did not exist before Dec 2021.

There is no and has never been a printed copy.

There is no buckscountybeacon office.

It's a malicious site disguised as a preexisting local newspaper to deceive users unfamiliar with the area and what the local papers are.

OP's reddit account exists to spam this site.

My Favorite right-wing troll, lol. The site is fed through Google News, it's work has been cited by The Philadelphia Inquirer and WHYY, among other media outlets, they have dozens of contributors from Bucks County and throughout the state, everything in this article, like its others, are accurate. Aren't you missing a replay of Tucker Carlosn right now. Keep trolling, I'll keep correcting :)


ThunderySleep t1_itaeqee wrote

> Keep trolling, I'll keep correcting :)

You didn't address anything in my comment, let alone correct anything.

Showing in organic SERP results aren't the same as submitting your site to be listed under google news, which isn't remotely indicative of authority, much less not being a scam site. But of course you don't know that, because you're some neckbeard fumbling around with a WYSIWYG trying to disguise a propaganda spam site as an existing local news journal.

Nice one adding a giant banner begging for money to build a real site since I called you out on it though. Wouldn't have noticed this post if you hadn't drunkenly posted to our conversation from a week ago on your other account btw.

Your homepage images still don't consistently load btw.

Nothing about this site is legit.

Doesn't even know how to create proper URLs, gives away that the site's built in a WYSIWYG (called elementor). But yeah, it's totally authentic, lol.

Like I said, nothing about this site is legit, and no one involved is a professional in any capacity. Hence wordpress of all things being too complicated for this totally authentic organization, so you need a WYSIWYG.

Hey, everyone! This person knows what WYSIWYG means! Isn’t that sooooooo impressive?! They must really know what they’re talking about because they keep saying the same thing over and over super confidently!


ThunderySleep t1_itbwwhs wrote

It's common knowledge what a WYSIWYG is, not some tech secret. They're not something used by serious legitimate organizations, they're utilized by kids playing around, mom and pop businesses, hobbiests, etc.

Legitimate decent sized organizations aren't needing WYSIWYG plug-ins for wordpress. Let alone organizations supposedly made up of journalists, who are typically capable of running a wordpress without the training-wheels of a WYSIWYG. This goes even more so for organizations who solely exist as a website. There's no buckscountybeacon office, no buckscountybeacon printed copy. It exists entirely as a scam site pretending to be a normal local paper.

Yet OP can't even build a functioning site. This is some incompetent guy's blog that he's trying to fake as being a local newspaper so as to deceive users.

Bro I’m a software dev and this isn’t the slam dunk you think it is. Lots of perfectly reputable sites are run using Wordpress or Gradle or some other template-based system


ThunderySleep t1_ith8vvc wrote

It is. Nobody's talking about wordpress. Wordpress is a fine CMS, especially for a magazine or blog.

They're usingelementor plug-in for wordpress, which is to turn wordpress into a WYSIWYG editor. Not something legitimate organizations do, much less journalists who are typically familiar with wordpress enough they don't need to turn it into wix.

If you're a software dev, you should be seeing a lot more glaring issues than that. I've gone into a lot more issues than that in their last thread.


chaqalaqalaqa t1_ithik99 wrote

Glaring issues like… what?


ThunderySleep t1_itkoil9 wrote

Images that don't load, generated URLs for primary pages (hence how I discovered it's built with a WYSIWYG), homepage is a cluster-fuck of carousel plug-ins stacked on top of each other, doesn't make it anywhere near the top pages on google for "local news bucks county pa", a logo design that looks like it's from 2002 paired with a super generic newspaper name suggesting their aiming at deceiving users into believing this is some existing established local newspaper, despite it being an activist site built this very election cycle.

These are glaring issues..

In most subreddits, a claim like that out of nowhere is a violation of the rules. You don't know me or anything about me, nor have I said anything about LGBTQ people.

madmanz123 t1_ithcgo7 wrote


Yeah.. that's not how you determine if a site is legit or not. Lots of both locally run news org and even larger sites use a WP backend and also often use a RTE editor (no one uses the term WYSIWYG anymore, that's like 2000s lingo).

You don't need a print copy of a news org to be "legit" Also, what is legit these days? I lived in west philly, this site iss WP powered and not fancy, but it's also a legit news site: that was run by locals.

From the Beacon support page
"Your support of the Beacon is an investment in a progressive future for Bucks County – a future where we as a community continue to make strides in achieving social, economic, and racial justice with an environmentally sustainable future. "

Now you may not like the news it features and that's fine. But please stop spreading bullshit. Someone put it up, that someone is progressive/liberal. The fact they used a traditional newspaper name is not exactly a conspiracy theory as it is just something commonly done to look more pro. If you have a gripe to pick with an article and want to fact-check it fine, but jesus stop whining.


ThunderySleep t1_itknq6g wrote

You're saying WP as though wordpress is the criticism.

Nobody is criticizing the use of wordpress. I'm pointing to the use of a WYSIWYG extension because wordpress is too complicated. And yes, this is a solid measure of legitimacy and professionalism.

Legit organizations with dozens and dozens of employees as this site's claiming to have don't operate on essentially a wix site with a broken homepage.

Furthermore, I didn't discover the WYSIWYG usage until deep into a discussion with OP trying to defend this scam site, when he linked his about page with a messy URL featuring the plug-in name.

The site was created this election cycle and is named and designed to suggest it's some long established regular local newspaper, despite being an activist site with 95% political content.

"bucks county beacon"? That's chosen to deceive readers into believing this is some regular long established local newspaper. Same with their logo designed like it's from 2002.

> If you have a gripe to pick with an article and want to fact-check it fine, but jesus stop whining.

Bud, you're chiming in trying to derail the discussion by pretending the critcism is the use of wordpress.

No one is criticising the use of wordpress. This site has a barely-functioning homepage with images that don't consistently load, a mess of broken carousels, built using a WYSIWYG. The site doesn't even appear in the top three SERPs for "local news bucks county". Buckscountybeacon is a misleading site, disguised as an established local newspaper. The very first article I clicked on turned out to be republished content from elsewhere.

It's a scam site. One that you're being disingenuous in defending, by trying to pretend the criticism is over the use of WP. The first time someone pointed to it might have been from skimming. The second time after I explained this says you're not being honest here.
