Analysis / Bias

In review, Mike Adams goes by the name the Health Ranger according to Rationalwiki. However, they point out dozens of cases where his claims are false. Besides promoting pseudoscience, Brighteon is an extreme right-wing biased that promotes false or misleading videos regarding vaccines, alternative health, and government conspiracies.
