Reasoning: Extreme Right, Hate Group
World Press Freedom Rank: USA 45/180
The Right Stuff is a white nationalist media hub that hosts several podcasts, including The Daily Shoah, now known as TDS. It is part of the broader alt-right movement in the United States and founded by Mike Enoch (Mike Peinovich). The website supports white nationalism and is a supporter of the belief of racialism, believing that races have different strengths and advantages, including in intelligence and strength. The Right Stuff promotes fascism so the government can enforce racial purity.
Funded by / Ownership
The website does not clearly indicate ownership, however, it does indicate the site is held through The Right Stuff Dot Biz LLC, which is presumed to be owned by Mike Peinovich. Revenue is derived through a paywall to access their podcasts.
Analysis / Bias
In review, The Right Stuff is essentially a portal to access extreme right podcasts that are white nationalist, antisemitic or racist. The website’s owner Mike Enoch (Mike Peinovich) has been described as a White Nationalist and a “principal voice on the Alt-Right.” The Anti-Defamation League has also called them a part of the “white supremacist movement.” In general, this is a far-right white nationalist hate group.
Overall, we rate The Right Stuff Questionable based on Extreme Right-Wing Bias, promotion of white supremacist propaganda, poor sourcing, and being labeled a hate group by experts in the field. (2/3/2017) Updated (D. Van Zandt 11/23/2019)
