Analysis / Bias
In review, Mike Adams is known as the Health Ranger according to Rationalwiki. However, they point out dozens of cases where his claims are false. Besides promoting pseudoscience, Big Government News is an extreme right-wing biased source that frequently promotes Donald Trump propaganda such as these: Secret trials, secret witnesses, secret proceedings… “impeachment” nothing but a deep state kangaroo court like you’d see in a Third World country This article is sourced to the highly questionable Gateway Pundit which has failed numerous fact checks. In this conspiracy story, there is zero evidence and hence why it is a conspiracy: Death camps, mass starvation and forced obedience to govt may follow open borders, free health care for illegals & the total destruction of the US Constitution if Democrats win in 2020.
In general, politically, all Mike Adam’s stories favor the right and promote pseudoscience such as chemtrails, the Sandy Hook shooting being a false flag: Sandy Hook was theater! Actor who played law enforcement sniper was recorded walking around carrying rifle by the magazine. Further, they routinely publish anti-vaccination propaganda and conspiracy theories. Lastly, this source denies the consensus on climate change without evidence, as seen here: Climate change cultists are now taking over your local weather forecast.
A factual search reveals that websites associated with the Natural News Network have failed too many fact checks to list here.
Overall, we rate Big Government News an extreme right biased tin foil hat conspiracy website that also promotes pseudoscience. This is one of the most discredited sources on the internet. (10/31/16) Updated (D. Van Zandt 10/16/2019)
