Analysis / Bias
In review, the Daily Grail reports on a wide variety of science as well as pseudoscience. Interestingly, they also properly debunk conspiracies and at the same time promote some. One of the primary themes of this website is the existence of an afterlife, which at this point there is zero evidence to support. The Daily Grail also likes to refer to skeptics such as James Randi as Guerrilla Skeptics, due to their aggressive nature in debunking false claims and conspiracies, such as the paranormal. What makes the Daily Grail deceiving is they publish many well sourced pro-science articles, yet in between these, are numerous articles referencing the existence of an afterlife, potential alien visitations and the paranormal.
Overall, this is a moderate Conspiracy and Pseudoscience website based on promotion of the after life, alien visitations and the paranormal. (D. Van Zandt 10/31/2018) Updated (2/23/2019)
