Analysis / Bias
The website publishes articles that often show a right-leaning bias. For example, an article titled “Another Soros-Funded Group Pushes For Social Media Platforms To Censor Election ‘Disinformation'” criticizes attempts to regulate disinformation on social media platforms, framing it as an attack on free speech. The article emphasizes explicitly the involvement of a “Soros-Funded Group,” a common talking point used to discredit organizations by associating them with George Soros, who is often a target of right-wing conspiracy theories. The article presents information aligned with a right-leaning perspective on free speech and censorship, citing sources like e-archive.Ph and primarily referencing itself.
Another article, “Emails From Hunter Biden’s Censored Laptop Shows Evidence of Covert Wikipedia Manipulation Attempts,” delves into the alleged manipulation of Wikipedia entries related to Hunter Biden. The article uses phrases like “murky world of high-profile individuals” and “clandestine operations” to describe the actions of Hunter Biden and his associates. It cites a report by journalist Lee Fang but adds its interpretation, suggesting “a premeditated attempt to “erase certain details” about Hunter Biden. The language used in the article indicates a bias against Hunter Biden and adds a conspiratorial tone to the reporting.
In general, Reclaim the Net holds a conservative editorial bias and is mixed factually based on poor sourcing and the publication of one-sided content that may lack context or evidence to support its claims.
