Founded by Bob Livingston in 2003, Personal Liberty is an ultra-conservative news and opinion website. The website is a product of The Bob Livingston Letter, founded in 1969. Bob Livingston claims to have had 4 heart attacks 45 years ago but never had surgery due to alternative health practices, which makes him a supposed health expert.
Funded by / Ownership
Personal Liberty is presumed to be owned by Bob Livingston with revenue derived through advertising.
In review, Personal Liberty could easily be classified as both a conspiracy and pseudoscience website, however, the content is also highly political favoring the right. For example, they frequently rail against globalists and praise President Trump such as this The conspiracy to kill Trump. Like most stories, this is completely unsourced and is the opinion of the author. When it comes to science this is not a reputable source on any level. They deny human-influenced climate change such as this Climate scientists: Alarm over global warming ‘based on nonsense’ and ‘irrational at best’ and promote anti-vaccination propaganda Vaccination 101: Why vaccines are useless, inefficient and dangerous. Finally, there are ample conspiracy theories found here such as the Clintons murdering people, Hillary is a deranged sociopathic war criminal who should be indicted for conspiracy and murder, and labeling the Coronavirus a hoax, as seen here The coronavirus hoax. In general, Personal Liberty is an extreme right biased website that promotes conspiracy theories, pseudoscience, and very poorly sourced.
Overall, we rate Personal Liberty a Questionable source based on extreme right-wing bias, promotion of conspiracies and propaganda, and poor sourcing. (D. Van Zandt 6/19/2016) Updated (4/20/20)
