Opinion Masquerade

The artifact is opinionated but is presented as factual.

Opinion masquerading is the practice of disseminating highly opinionated content in such a way as to convince consumers that the content is factual or, at least, impartial in its conjecture and interpretation.


The Opinion Masquerade flag is used to identify opinionated content that isn’t publicized or categorized as such and is therefore likely to be interpreted as factual. The most common case where this occurs is when publishers attempt to shoehorn subjective content into an objective container or presentation.
