Analysis / Bias
Stew Peters, a far-right radio host with a history of advancing COVID-19 conspiracy theories, is the producer of “Died Suddenly.” In his previous movie, “Watch the Water,” the radio host claimed that the coronavirus is a synthetic snake venom spread through COVID-19 vaccines and drinking water. Politifact rated this claim as pants on fire.
The website does not present text-based news, only hosting the 78-minute video. In Died Suddenly, Peters continues promoting debunked conspiracy theories and pseudoscience related to Covid-19 and the vaccines. The film’s general theme is that “COVID-19 vaccines are part of a depopulation scheme by global elites who want to establish a global regime.” Further, the video relies on unreliable sources such as Children’s Health Defense, Dr. Robert Malone, and other alternative health advocates.
In general, DiedSuddenly.info advances debunked conspiracy theories and impossible pseudoscience (see failed fact checks). For a detailed account of all the disinformation contained in this film, please see here: The film “Died Suddenly” rehashes debunked claims and conspiracy theories about the COVID-19 vaccines, and here ‘Died Suddenly’ Pushes Bogus Depopulation Theory.
