Analysis / Bias

In review, True Activist mainly publishes positive stories from other sources or pseudoscience; however, they often don’t credit these sources, making it difficult to determine if the stories are factual. Headlines and wording are often sensationalized: UK Accidentally Admits Use Of Horrifying, Organ Rupturing Weapons In Syria. This story is sourced to the conspiracy/pseudoscience website The Mind Unleashed. Politically, True Activist does not have a favorable view of President Trump, as evidenced by this article: Scientists Are Being Demoted By Trump Administration For Studying Climate Change.

When it comes to science, True Activists support the consensus on climate change but do not when it comes to GMOs, as they often promote anti-GMO propaganda. They also promote anti-vaccine propaganda as well as chemtrails.
