More networks upon networks
Hello, reporters! I’m glad people liked the last post about Ctrl+F-ing through YouTube videos. This is a little tool I’ve kept in my back pocket for a while and have never really had a news peg for.
Basically, linkfromdomain gives you a list of you outgoing links from a certain website. A search for “linkfromdomain:toolsforreporters.com” shows websites like Trello, MuckRock, and Flourish. Bout what you’d expect.
I tried it on Alex Jones’s Infowars, always my guinea pig for this sort of thing, and found links to a lot of other conspiracy websites. Again, about what you’d expect, but it could be a connection that might be hard to dig up otherwise. Linkfromdomain strikes me as an intriguing tool if you’re backgrounding a source or trying to map out networks.
Plus, Bing has heckin good backdrops, doesn’t it? That’s one thing it really does have over Google. Brave the web, reporters!
