Factual Reporting: MIXED
Earth First! is a radical environmental advocacy group that emerged in the Southwestern United States in 1979. Earth First was the group responsible for tree spiking in the late 80’s and early 90’s that resulted in an injury when a saw blade shattered. Earth First continues to use sabotage tactics to “protect” the earth, however, they now have a policy of making sure humans will not be injured.

Analysis / Bias
The content of the journal is extreme left environmental activism and anti-capitalism. We could not find an instance of a failed fact check, but we did note that they do not support the consensus of science when it comes to GMO’s. Based on that we are rating them mixed for factual reporting and far left biased due to environmental positions. (5/8/2017) Updated (9/7/2018)
