Funded by / Ownership

X22 Report is funded through a combination of online ads and many prominent donate buttons. They also accept cryptocurrencies. David Booth appears to be the owner of the website. He does not provide his last name on the website.

Analysis / Bias

The focus of the X22 Report 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. Many articles strongly favor former President Trump and his conspiracy theories regarding election fraud. See failed fact checks below.

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; in general, X22 rates as a far-right conspiracy and pseudoscience website with low credibility. Finally, during the Covid-19 pandemic and the Presidential election of 2020, they frequently published false or misleading information.
