Funded by / Ownership

World Tribune claims ownership is East West Services, Inc.; however, the closest we can find is a building service in San Jose, California. We also found a LinkedIn account that may be closer to the truth. Revenue appears to be derived from advertising.

Analysis / Bias

In review, World Tribune publishes news stories with emotionally loaded words that favor the right such as this: Unreported: ‘Christianophobic’ attacks on the rise in France and Germany. This story provides zero links to support their report. In another story: How Soros-funded out-of-state networks orchestrate state-level legislation, there is again zero linking or evidence to support their claims. Let’s go deeper and look at the science. When it comes to climate change, this source does not support the consensus of science at all.

During the Covid-19 pandemic, they frequently published misinformation. In general, the World Tribune publishes many true stories; however, occasionally, they publish outright fake news.
