Bias: Extreme Right, Propaganda, Conspiracy
Notes: Mad American Network is a news/podcast website run by Dave Martel. According to their own description “Dave Martel and co. bring you the freshest Memes, Articles, Commentary and Podcasts. 100% original content.”
The website has Shop, Donate, Podcasts, and Documentaries categories. Under the Shop category, Mad American Network sells alt-right inspired t-shirts, such as: “Pinochet would approve of this sweat shirt. Wear this bad boy to let all the commies know where their place is. Being flung from a rotary aircraft.” David Martel also hosts podcasts with his co-host Ryan Ramsey under Global Dissident Voices.
In review, Mad American Network reports news/commentary with poor sourcing that supports white nationalism and racialism. Mad American Network also promotes conspiracies surrounding the Las Vegas shooting, the deepstate and the Seth Rich Murder. Overall, we rate Mad American Network Questionable based on extreme right wing bias and promotion of propaganda and conspiracy theories. (M. Huitsing 11/6/2017)
