Founded in 1999, What Really Happened is a news and opinion blog that is dedicated 100% to the promotion of right-wing conspiracies and pseudoscience. The website lacks transparency as it does not offer an about page or clearly describe ownership.
Funded by / Ownership
Michael Rivero owns What Really Happened. He is a podcaster, actor, and director. Advertising and a shop that sells merchandise generate revenue.
Analysis / Bias
They cover all the usual: The Clinton body count, false flags, global warming denial, Jewish Banker conspiracy, Vince Foster, 9-11, etc. There is not much else to say here other than it must be seen to be believed. Finally, if you really want to know “what really happened?” this would be the last site to visit.
Overall, we rate What Really Happened far-right biased and a Tin-Foil Hat Conspiracy and Quackery Level Pseudoscience website based on the near-constant promotion of false and misleading information. (D. Van Zandt 8/5/2017) Updated (9/4/2021)
