Analysis / Bias

PaulCraigRoberts.org primarily publishes the writings of Mr. Roberts and information on his appearances and interviews. The content is often conspiratorial and promotes white nationalism. For example, a quote from an article reads, “White people are doomed. Their very own institutions are against them. And they sit there insouciant, unaware. A pitiful end of a great race.”

Articles and headlines contain emotionally charged wording that favors the extreme right, such as The Death of the Deracinated West Is Close at Hand and Biden Declares WAR on White America. PaulCraigRoberts.org relies on poor sources who routinely promote disinformation, such as Infowars, RT, and SOTT Report.

When not promoting White Nationalism, the website frequently advances conspiracy theories such as the 2020 election being stolen from Donald Trump: The Costs of a Stolen Election Mount. There is no evidence to support the election was stolen. Mr. Roberts also promotes Covid-19 conspiracy theories such as this Is the Covid “vaccine” a Bioweapon? The answer to this is no. Finally, he promotes quackery-level pseudoscience claiming that the “mRNA injection brings high risk of health injury and death.” There is no evidence to support this claim. In general, the website consistently promotes extreme right conspiracy theories and pseudoscience.
