Analysis / Bias

In review, the website publishes information on intelligent design, conservative economics and many other Christian perspectives. News articles focus on those that are opposed to Darwin’s theory of evolution and often link to outside sources such as this: Evolutionary Enigmas, Tiny Tardigrades Strut Their Superpowers. Discovery Institute also publishes news from a right leaning economic perspective such as this: Discovery Fellow Christopher Rufo with Tucker Carlson on the West Coast Shoplifting Boom.

According to the left leaning SPLC the Discover Institute has received funding from a known hate group. In general, they are a website that promotes pseudoscience, regarding evolution.
