For example, they promote the following conspiracies on the home page today:

Outside of promoting right-wing conspiracy theories, they also publish anti-vaccine pseudoscience propaganda from the discredited Natural News. Further, they also promote the conspiracy that the USA is funding Biolabs in Ukraine.
