Analysis / Bias

In review, Need to Know covers a wide range of debunked conspiracies such as false flag operations being routinely conducted and anti-vaccine propaganda. Most stories come from other non-credible conspiracy/pseudoscience sources such as: Zerohedge, Infowars, Gateway Pundit and Natural News.

Need to Know also presents news with an alt-right bias such as anti-immigration stories and negative portrayal of minorities and Muslims.

Overall, this is a tin foil hat conspiracy website that has an extreme right wing bias in reporting. (D. Van Zandt 9/15/2018)
