Analysis / Bias
In review, The Rundown Live does not produce original news articles, but rather provides links to news stories. Some stories are credible such as this from Reuters New Mexico congressman tests positive for coronavirus. Other stories are from poor sources such as Summit News. They also publish misinformation from conspiracy sources such as the Corbett Report: How Governments Are Hunting the Infected – #NewWorldNextWeek. The website frequently publishes conspiracy theories such as this World War Three Is Imminent And #INoLongerComply and ANTIFA SUPPORTS PEDOPHILIA? In general, this is a tin-foil hat conspiracy website that promotes disinformation.
Overall, we rate The Rundown Live a Tin-Foil Hat Conspiracy website for the promotion of unproven and debunked extraordinary claims. (8/10/2016) Updated (D. Van Zandt 8/01/2020)
