Factual Reporting: MIXED
Founded in 2012, Higher Perspective is a news and opinion website covering relationships, health and lifestyle. According to their about page they disclaim “Please be aware, we are not a news website! We are an opinion-based blog about spirituality, health, astrology, and relationships.”
Higher Perspective completely lacks transparency as they do not name authors, editors, location or owners.
Funded by / Ownership
Higher Perspective does not disclose ownership, however at the bottom of each page the website is copyrighted to Higher Perspective, LLC. Revenue is derived through advertising.
When it comes to sourcing they will occasionally use credible sources such as WebMD and legitimate scientific studies, however many times they utilize poor pseudoscience sources such as Healthy Holistic Living. Of note, the website does offer a disclaimer that reads “We here at Higher Perspective do not hold backgrounds in medicine or science and anything read on this website should be read with an open mind and taken with a grain of salt.”
