Analysis / Bias

Winterwatch is a right-wing blog that posts conspiracy theories about Joe Biden, such as claiming this video of Biden is a deep fake or uses a body double. Is Biden in Deepfake Mode? Reuters has written a thorough debunking of these claims.

Some articles are anti-Semitic as the site has a tag section on Jewish power and influence found here https://www.winterwatch.net/tag/jewish-power-influence/.

The Pizzagate theory gets several articles like The DC Pizzagate Unfolds: Pedophile Scandal Brewing. This theory was found to be false.

For sourcing, most links are internal and merely link back to the article being read rather than linking to external evidence. In general, Winter Watch is a far-right biased blog that consistently promotes false information and conspiracy theories.

Failed Fact Checks

  • Third parties have not fact-checked them. See the above examples.
