Analysis / Bias
Eco News is a news and opinion website that focuses on the environment and natural health. Eco News has a strong left-wing bias politically and uses loaded emotional words in headlines and articles. For the most part, they source properly, however they do use other pseudoscience sources such as the Health Sciences Institute. While many articles are factual on this site, there is a moderate promotion of vaccination propaganda and anti-Gmo positions that is not based on scientific evidence.
Eco News has also published a fake news story.
