Doubtful News (sometimes Doubtful Newsblog) is a skeptical news aggregator focusing on cryptozoology and the paranormal "because people really believe this stuff." Run by Sharon Hill and Torkel Ødegård,[1] the blog was also formerly syndicated on It launched on August 25, 2011.[2]

The site was begun to fill a gap in the market for a "one-stop source of breaking news of interest to critical thinkers that was not primarily straight science offerings or opinions."[1] It is useful in that it reports on more than just the major stories of the time—with the potential to report on lesser stories before they become big—and will keep with a story after it fades from view, allowing followup information to be more easily found.
