Analysis / Bias

Les Moutons Rebelles publishes news and opinions covering France/European News, US News, Science, and Health. The Rebel Sheep does not perform original reporting but instead publishes articles based on other sources such as AFP. However, they also frequently utilize poor sources such as InfoWars, Truth Theory, and others that promote conspiracy theories and pseudoscience. We also found several articles without a source listed.

Articles and headlines often contain loaded emotional wording that favors right-leaning conspiracy theories such as this A green light for the containment of the unvaccinated in Austria expected on Sunday. The source for this story is the discredited conspiracy site Disclose TV. The website frequently promotes conspiracy theories on 9/11, False Flags, and especially Covid-19. For example, they report that Covid-19 is a biological weapon created by the Chinese and Didier Raoult: “The Case Fatality Rate of Covid Patients when Treated with Hydroxychloroquine: 0.1%!” There is no evidence to support the use of Hydroxychloroquine as a treatment/prevention for Covid-19. In general, Les Moutons Rebelles promotes conspiracy theories and pseudoscience from a right-leaning perspective.
