Reasoning: Extreme Right, Propaganda, Conspiracy, Hate Group
World Press Freedom Rank: Sweden 3/180
Founded in 2003, Red Ice TV’s tagline “The future is the past” is a news platform that consists of a website, TV, and online radio, including Red Ice Radio and Radio 3Fourteen run by Henrik Palmgren, who is a Swedish alt-right political vlogger. His program frequently hosts a wide variety of content, including white nationalism, antisemitic theories, the paranormal, and philosophy, frequently from a far-right perspective. Guests on the show include white nationalists such as Richard B. Spencer and Andrew Anglin (owner and founder of the Daily Stormer).
Funded By / Ownership
The website appears to be owned by Palmgren and is supported through subscriptions and pay per view.
Analysis / Bias
In review, the website content contains strong anti-Muslim propaganda that showcases crimes committed by Muslims, while failing to report crimes by whites. The Southern Poverty Law Center calls Red Ice TV “a racist online radio broadcast.” Red Ice TV also interviews people who are conspiracy theorists such as L.A. Marzulli who has a false claim according to Snopes.
Overall, we rate Red Ice TV a Questionable source based on an extreme alt-right bias that promotes white nationalist propaganda, conspiracy theories and is considered a hate group by the SPLC. (M. Huitsing 8/24/2017) Updated (10/26/2019)
