Analysis / Bias

Lew Rockwell is a website that promotes conspiracies, pseudoscience, and fringe economic theories. Lew Rockwell uses minimal loaded words in their headlines and articles, but they typically source to far-right or questionable sources such as Brietbart, Zerohedge, and the #1 purveyor of pseudoscience Joseph Mercola. Some of the topics you will find on the website are those related to anti-vaccination propaganda, Mind Control, False Flags, and anti-immigration articles from other questionable sources.  Further, the Lew Rockwell website has been placed on the Hatewatch list by the Southern Poverty Law Center. A factual search also reveals that Lew Rockwell has a very poor track record with fact checkers. For more information I recommend, RationalWiki who has done a fantastic job of putting all of it together.

Overall, we rate Lew Rockwell Questionable based on Extreme Right Bias, promotion of propaganda, conspiracy theories, and pseudoscience. (7/19/2016) Updated (D. Van Zandt 6/13/2018)
