Founded in 2015, The Hagmann Report is a conservative news and commentary website by Doug Hagmann. Mr. Hagmann is the CEO, Senior Investigator, of Hagmann Investigative Services, Inc. The website links his podcast via iHeart Media, a weekly video show, and his recently published book.
The website lacks an about page; however, a bio reads, “Douglas J. Hagmann has been a licensed investigator in the private sector for the last 30 years. As a private detective, Hagmann has worked well over 5,000 cases and is recognized as a surveillance specialist. He has worked as an informational and operational asset for various federal and state law enforcement agencies.”
Funded by / Ownership
Doug Hagmann owns the website. Advertising, donations, and an online store that sells branded merchandise generate revenue.
Analysis / Bias
The Hagmann Report website primarily serves to promote and showcase his various media programs. It also publishes news and commentary from a conservative perspective such as this ‘Delta Variant’ Fear Mongering Reason Confirmed By MSM. This article originates from the Questionable SHTFplan. Another article cites the Center for Immigration Studies, which MBFC also rates as questionable.
Editorially, The Hagmann Report frequently aligns with the Right through support for former President Donald Trump. In fact, they often promote the debunked election fraud narrative such as this Here is the evidence of 2020 Presidential Election Fraud (this information would be admissible in court). The source for this article is Here is the Evidence, a website that promotes election fraud misinformation. Finally, they also promote anti-vaccine propaganda such as this “Vaccine” Death Toll Rising. This story relies on Vaers, which is unreliable as anybody can report on it. The source for this piece is Medical Kidnap, which promotes crackpot-level anti-vaccine propaganda. In general, The Hagmann Report promotes misinformation with a strong right-leaning bias.
Failed Fact Checks
Overall, we rate The Hagmann Report as extreme right-biased and Questionable based on the promotion of propaganda and conspiracy theories, the use of poor sources, and false information. (D. Van Zandt 12/24/2021)
