Analysis / Bias
In review, Offgrid Survival’s primary focus is on survival techniques and the necessary equipment needed. However, they also cover political topics with a far-right bias in reporting. All articles related to political issues favor the right. In some cases, Offgrid Survival promotes conspiracy theories such as an impending World War III and shadow government conspiracies. Offgrid Survival also has an unproven claim, according to Snopes, and is on a fake news list.
Scientifically, they report with skepticism on the Covid Vaccines such as this Fauci Admits Vaccine Could enhance COVID infection: Gates Says You Will Need Multiple Injections. They also reported on the debunked election fraud narrative such as this FOX News Cuts off White House Press Secretary when she presents Evidence of Voter Fraud – The Fix is In!. While our methodology doesn’t consider this a fake news source due to considerable credible information, it certainly is right-wing biased and mixed for factual reporting especially as it relates to politics and science.
