Analysis / Bias
In review, The Liberty Beacon routinely publishes conspiracy theories and pseudoscience information. When it comes to pseudoscience, they promote anti-GMO propaganda and anti-Vaccination fear-mongering. They also report on the Government’s use of Chemtrails as a means of GeoEngineering. Regarding conspiracies, they report on the dangers of the so-called New World Order, the Clinton’s as murderers, and numerous claims of false flags, including 9-11.
When it comes to sourcing, virtually all of them are either Questionable, fellow conspiracy sites, or far-right biased. Here are some sample sources we found: Natural News, InfoWars, and Mercola. Finally, throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, they have promoted false and misleading claims.
Failed Fact Checks
- ‘Courts quietly confirm MMR vaccine causes autism’ says: “courts, governments, and vaccine manufacturers have quietly conceded the fact that the Measles Mumps and Rubella (MMR) vaccine most likely does cause autism and stomach diseases” – False
Overall, we rate The Liberty Beacon a far-right biased conspiracy/pseudoscience website that is both tin foil hat and quackery level based on the consistent promotion of misinformation, unproven and false claims. (7/21/2016) Updated (D. Van Zandt 11/29/2021)
