—Everything you need to know about Globalresearch[1]
Globally researching, globally wrong.

Globalresearch (under the domain names globalresearch.ca and globalresearch.org) is the website of the Montreal-based non-profit The Centre for Research on Globalisation (CRG) founded by Michel Chossudovsky,[2][3] a tenured professor at the University of Ottawa.[4] Weep for the future.

While many of Globalresearch's articles discuss legitimate humanitarian or environmental concerns, the site has a strong undercurrent of reality warping throughout its pages. Its view of science, the economy and geopolitics seems to be broadly conspiracist. It's no surprise then that the site has long become a magnet for radicals, fringe figures and whacko elements from the left in general.

Globalresearch may be best described as the moonbat equivalent to WorldNetDaily. Whenever someone makes a remarkable claim and cites Globalresearch, they are almost certainly wrong.

[edit] What it thinks it is

Globalresearch describes itself as an "independent research and media organization". It considers itself to be "one of the leading alternative news media in North America" and "on the New World Order". Globalresearch considers itself to be a reliable "alternative news" source serving as a major repository of a broad range of "news articles, in-depth reports and analysis on issues which are barely covered by the mainstream media".[3]

Its politico-economic stance is strongly anti-capitalist,[5][6] anti-"imperialist",[7][8] anti-militarist,[9] and anti-globalization.[10]

[edit] Conspiracy theories

Despite presenting itself as a source of scholarly analysis, Global Research mostly consists of polemicists. The prevalent strand is that a New World Order is being implemented by global elites (primarily governments and corporations).[11][12] Many of the articles accept conspiracy theories, pseudoscience, and propaganda in order to further this narrative.

Specific conspiracy theories include:

[edit] Antisemitism?

Israel’s dominant role in formulating US Middle East policy is largely a product of its success at recruiting, socializing and motivating overseas Jews to act as an organized force to intervene in US politics and push Israel’s agenda. What motivates American Jews, who have been raised and educated in the US[,] to serve Israel? [....] I am going to focus on one – the ideology that ‘Jews are a superior people’. The notion that Jews, either through some genetic, biologic, cultural, historical, familial and/or [sic] upbringing, have[ ]special [sic] qualities allowing them to achieve at a uniquely higher level than the ‘inferior’ non-Jews.
—The Doctrine of ‘Superior People’: The Bond between Israel and World Zionism[32]

[edit] Noted sources

Globalresearch appears to be largely a news clearinghouse, as very few of the stories on their homepage are attributed to "Global Research News"[42] or "Global Research"[43]. Globalresearch contributors are happy to source information from anyone who seems vaguely aligned with their ideology, even if said contributors are full of horseshit:
