Founded in 2016, New American News is a news and opinion website that promotes conspiracy theories and pseudoscience. The site does not have an about page, name ownership or disclose author bios. Though it appears Paul Webber publishes most articles.
Funded by / Ownership
New American News lacks transparency as it does not disclose ownership. However, a search of the domain reveals it is owned by a real estate company based in Wyoming called Savvy Investments, LLC. Revenue is derived through advertising.
Analysis / Bias
In review, all articles are published by Paul Webber and primarily deal with opposition to Big Pharma and anti-vaccination propaganda. For example, this article implies that vaccines cause autism, which is not true Mom’s Letter ‘I’d Rather My Child Have Measles Than Autism’. When not promoting medical misinformation they cover topics such as Chemtrails and quackery stories such as this Vaccines To Be Released Using Aerosol Spray From Planes. Editorially, New American News tends to favor the right. Though less political than Natural News, the health content is similar. In general, this site completely lacks credibility.
Failed Fact Checks
- They have never been fact-checked. See above for examples of false and misleading claims.
