Sources in the Conspiracy-Pseudoscience category may publish unverifiable information that is not always supported by evidence.

Factual Reporting: MIXED

Notes: Launched in 2009, Media Roots is a citizen journalism website that focus on producing newscasts, podcasts and editorials. Media Roots provides coverage that includes, in their own words: “Media Roots is a citizen journalism project that reports the news from outside of party lines while providing a collaborative forum for conscious citizens, artists and activists to unite.” Abby Martin is the founder of Media Roots. She is the former correspondent for RT America, she is also an artist and activist. In 2016, Martin endorsed both Green candidate Jill Stein and Party for Socialism and Liberation candidate Gloria La Riva for President of the United States. The New York Times describes her as a 9/11 conspiracy theorist.

Media Roots utilizes strong loaded words and some of their articles are poorly sourced such as “Hillary Clinton’s Business of Corporate Shilling & War Making.” However, some of their articles are sourced to credible news media such as The Guardian and Bloomberg. Media Roots has a far left political bias with support for socialism and most articles on their website favor the left. While many articles are factual, Media Roots also promotes Vaccine and GMO propaganda as well as 9/11 conspiracy theories. Overall, we rate Media Roots a Left Biased Conspiracy – Pseudoscience source. (M. Huitsing 12/04/2017)
