Analysis / Bias
CD Media primarily republishes or summarizes articles from questionable sources like Zero Hedge and Breitbart. They also republish Steve Bannon’s War Room podcast, which frequently advances conservative conspiracy theories. Articles and headlines often contain emotional language that favors the right and denigrates the left, such as this Catastrophic Contagion – Bill Gates, WHO, And Johns Hopkins Conduct Another Pandemic Simulation. This story, like many others, does not offer a hyperlinked source.
Editorially, all stories favor the right, and particularly former President Trump, such as this Trump HAS To Talk About How He Will Defeat The Election Fraud Cabal – No More Hopium! Based on their support for Trump, they have endorsed his lies regarding election fraud, such as this Video: Will Republicans Stop the 2022 Election Fraud? There is no evidence of significant election fraud in the 2020 or 2022 elections.
CD Media also promotes Covid-19 disinformation, such as this Ed Dowd: The Vaccine Deaths Are Massive. There is no evidence to support “Massive” vaccine deaths. Finally, Cd Media promotes various globalist conspiracies and false flags regarding mass shootings like this Facts Beg The Question – Was Uvalde School Shooting Manufactured To Take Your Guns? In general, this website promotes extreme right-wing conspiracy theories and pseudoscience.
