Analysis / Bias
In review, the Corbett Report publishes Youtube videos, podcasts and articles from a right wing conspiracy perspective. The website touches on many different conspiracies and pseudoscience propaganda. Below is a short list of topics.
- 9/11 Whistleblowers (Full Documentary) (promotes alternative theories about 9/11)
- How To Engineer A Crisis (False Flag Operations)
- Chemtrails Exposed: The past, present and future of the New Manhattan Project (Chemtrail conspiracies and pseudoscience)
- Never Forget: What the Deep State Wants You to Remember About 9/11 (Deep State)
- The IPCC Prepares to Release More Hot Air (Human Influenced Climate Change Denial)
- Interview 1370 – James Corbett on the New World Order (New World Order)
Politically, the Corbett Report aligns with the right through the promotion of human influenced climate change denialism and Socialism fear promotion. They also do not have a favorable view of President Donald Trump.

Left vs. Right Bias: How we rate the bias of media sources
i question your assessment of Corbett Report’s factual reporting as LOW. He generally has links to sources in his show notes so people can look into the information he spouts for themselves. Why have you rated him LOW when most news organisations you cite are rated HIGH when most never link to any sources at all? Does mediafactcheck.com have a bias towards establishment media? If yes, can you rate yourself as MEDIUM for all checks?
