Analysis / Bias

In review, the “MAKING SENSE OF THE MADNESS” section on American Media Periscope features a series of episodes that discuss various topics, often challenging mainstream narratives. One such episode features Dr. Rima Laibow discussing the United Nations and “The Great Narrative: “Rima Laibow Destroys The Great Narrative | MSOM Ep. 818. Dr. Rima Laibow, a trustee of Natural Solutions Foundation, was involved in controversies over marketing a colloidal silver product as a COVID-19 treatment without FDA approval. The Foundation settled a federal lawsuit, and a permanent injunction was issued against them, preventing the marketing of the product without FDA oversight.

Further, in a Newsweek article, Dr. Rima Laibow and the Natural Solutions Foundation referred to the FDA as a “Deep State agency.” They were ordered by a federal court to stop selling a “nanosilver” COVID-19 treatment, claiming that agencies like the FDA target “health freedom advocates.” In summary, Dr. Rima Laibow is a controversial figure. While she engages in discussions that challenge mainstream viewpoints, her history of legal controversies related to health claims adds a dimension of scrutiny to her credibility.

Furthermore, Michael Flynn, a retired Army lieutenant general and former Trump national security adviser, has a controversial history, including a guilty plea for lying to the FBI and a subsequent pardon. Described by The Atlantic as blending “deranged political ideas” with religious beliefs, Flynn is a key figure in the “ReAwaken America” events. American Media Periscope’s partnership with Flynn’s tour suggests a far-right ideological alignment for the media outlet. Finally, they have promoted QAnon-related conspiracies, such as claiming the military has installed Trump back as President.

In general, American Media Periscope is a far-right source that has promoted conspiracy theories and pseudoscience, as evidenced by the above and failed fact checks below.
