Analysis / Bias
The focus of X22 is on the potential for an economic meltdown where inflation drives the cost of goods to unaffordable levels. In fact, X22 provides a list of prepping materials needed for this collapse. These include food, water, toilet supplies, weapons, ammunition, gold, and silver, etc. X22 also believes that climate change is a hoax. The wording of headlines and articles contain only mild loaded words, however, they consistently use questionable sources such as conspiracy theorist Ben Swann and Greg Hunter of USAWatchdog. X22 also has a page dedicated to Relocations of Unaccompanied Immigrant Minors, which provides a map of where they are most concentrated in the USA. There isn’t a description as to why this map is posted. Do they have sympathy for immigrant minors? Or is it a warning? Based on the comments below the map it appears that the readers are opposed to immigrants, with some fearing spread of diseases.
Overall, the X22 Report is a strong Conspiracy website that promotes unproven claims. (D. Van Zandt 4/14/2018) Updated (6/15/2018)
