Ben Swann reality check

So let's give this guy a reality check:

Bias: Extreme Right, Propaganda, Conspiracy, Fake News

"In review, Truth in Media attempts to investigate stories that the mainstream media won’t cover. One of the reasons why the mainstream media won’t cover these topics is because they are not true or have been debunked. For example, Ben Swann has promoted the Pizzagate conspiracy theory as well as those related to the Sandy Hook Elementary Massacre. Swann has expressed skepticism of the scientific consensus that vaccines do not cause autism. Further, almost all of Truth in Media’s stories favor the right and discredit the left. Truth in Media/Ben Swann also has a poor track record with fact checkers. Overall, we rate Truth in Media a Questionable source based on overt right wing bias, promotion of conspiracies and a poor track record with fact checkers. (7/19/2016) Updated (D.
