Article on Fritz Springmeier[edit]

This is one of those cases where we clearly need an article, as Wikipedia even considers the man notable. Vigilant Citizen can/should perhaps become a subsection in the main article on Fritz. Reverend Black Percy (talk) 20:28, 7 August 2015 (UTC)

Sinister Sites[edit]

The sinister sites subsection of this website is rather fun. Ignore the "occult" aspect and he really does point out nice architectural features of a lot of interesting public buildings. B4Xiphos (talk) 08:29, 27 April 2016 (UTC)

Ridiculous bias in the opening paragraph[edit]

"Vigilant Citizen is a website that is dedicated to discovering the hidden "symbolism"(?) in the popular media, usually involving the Illuminati. The outlet is heavily socially Conservative and is always talking about how Socialism is taking over the world <ref> [https://vigilantcitizen.com/vigilantreport/economist-2015-cover-filled-cryptic-symbols-dire-predictions/ The Economist 2015 Cover is Filled With Cryptic Symbols and Dire Predictions] A magazine cover proves the end times are near </ref> So really, it's Infowars but for popular media."

Where do I start? Symbolism is symbolism, why it has to be written as "symbolism"(?) is beyond me.

Also, to claim that it is always talking about how Socialism is taking over the world... no it doesn't. Socialism? Really? Even the article cited doesn't prove this. The standard of reportage in this wanker's paradise is shocking. — Unsigned, by: 86.25.20.62 / talk

So... Yeah, "bias" is the wrong word for what you're describing, the word you're looking for is "inaccuracy". As for the substance of said inaccuracies, I'd have to check the source to verify your counter-claim. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 18:48, 28 January 2019 (UTC)
@GrammarCommie Careful, that IP or a similar one was previously used by Mikey, whom is also from the UK. Watch out, I smell Nazi in the air. Ɖøn Ĵuan To Harass and Intimidate 18:56, 28 January 2019 (UTC)
