Analysis / Bias
In review, The Anti-Media publishes news that is broken into three categories: Our News, Their News, and My News. “Our News” consists of primarily original stories written by TAM. “Their News” leads to outside conspiracy sources such as Middle East Eye, Mint Press, and Zero Hedge. The “My News” section is news stories that are shared by readers.
The Our News section best reflects the direction and bias of this website. A review of articles found here reveals numerous instances of conspiracy theories being promoted such as false flags: The 12 Strongest Arguments That Douma Was a False Flag. This story is sourced to a combination of credible sources such as Foreign Policy as well as full-blown conspiracy websites such as the Corbett Report. When it comes to science The Anti-Media does not support the consensus with GMOs and promotes 9/11 conspiracies. In general, the Anti-Media reports some factual stories as well as some that are conspiracy and pseudoscience.
Overall, we rate The Anti-Media a Moderate Conspiracy and Pseudoscience website based on the promotion of unproven claims. We also rate them Mixed for factual reporting due to the use of poor sources and the promotion of unproven claims. (D. Van Zandt 5/18/2016) Updated (12/21/2019)
