Analysis / Bias
The Redacted YouTube Channel and Podcast publish conspiratorially motivated news stories appealing to a conservative/anti-establishment audience. Many stories promote unproven claims such as this She’s exposing the TRUTH in Ukraine and they don’t like it, and Holy SH*T, they just admitted US has ‘boots on the ground’ in Ukraine. Many stories reviewed relate to unproven claims related to Ukraine. This last story is false/misleading as we do not have boots on the ground, but rather weapons inspectors.
Redacted also promotes misleading information regarding Covid-19 vaccines like this from their website, The Covid Vaccine’s Adverse Effects on Women. While the article itself is factual, the headline leads one to believe that the vaccine is harmful to women. It is not. Finally, Redacted frequently promotes conspiracy theories related to economics, especially as it relates to the World Economic Forum, Forget the Great Reset. now it’s The Great Segmentation for Schwab. In general, Redacted publishes a mix of factual and misleading conspiracy-type stories that would appeal to a conservative or anti-establishment audience.
