Analysis / Bias

In review, Debunking Denialism reports news that refutes pseudoscience, conspiracy theories, and junk science in general. The website features many articles exposing anti-vaxxers such as this: Fake Anti-Vaccine “Fact-Checker” Targets Memorial Page of Dead Child. This story, like all on this website, is properly sourced. While Debunking Denialism is a pro-science website it also is political through the use of loaded emotional language such as these Quacks Who Let Their Son Die Demanded 4 Million Dollars. Court Rejected It and No, Science Hasn’t “Always Been a Bit Post-Truth” and this Swedish Far-Right Politician Talk Nonsense About Climate Change. When it comes to politics they have a negative opinion of President Donald Trump and the far right. In general, Debunking Denialism is a pro-science website that leans left based on a belief in human-influenced climate change, evolution, evidence-based medicine anti-right sentiments.
