The sources they promote reads like a who’s who of far-right conspiracy, pseudoscience, and fake news. Some of the sources they promote are The Epoch Times (Questionable), Natural News (Tin-Foil Hat Conspiracy), National File (Conspiracy), Newstarget (Quackery Pseudoscience), and Children’s Health Defense (Quack anti-Vaxx propaganda).
