WhoWhatWhy is a source of interesting comment and opinion, and formerly of original research in the area of deep politics. They were however largely taken in by the COVID project and since about 2020 their reporting has become more polemic and less evidence based.[citation needed] In 2024 Russ Baker claimed that there "are surely dozens and dozens of reasons that everyone should get vaccinated [against COVID-19]", while noting that many longtime readers had written to him that he had lost his ability to see “what is really going on.”[1]


The website was founded by Russ Baker. He has attracted a team of other writers.


WhoWhatWhy has reported on the Boston Marathon Bombing and is critical of the claim that the event was planned and carried out by Dzhokhar Tsarnaev and his brother Tamerlan Tsarnaev.[2]

On the other hand, it distinctly follows the official narrative on other subjects, like "climate change"[3], the Russia-Ukraine War[4][5], and "Covid"[6]

Articles and reports from WhoWhatWhy have been picked up by The Huffington Post,[7] Business Insider[8] and Alternet.[9]


Board of Directors and Editorial Advisory Council as of April 2024, including some with emeritus status.[10]

Russ BakerAuthor of a breathtakingly definitive account of the Bush Crime Family.
Robert DreyfussAmerican investigative journalist, worked for the Executive Intelligence Review
Daniel EllsbergA feted whistleblower who exposed some details of how the US government was waging the Vietnam War. The fact that he was not persecuted has lead several commentators to suggest that he may not in fact have been all he appears to be. Specifically, the Pentagon Papers may have been a limited hangout.
David TalbotFounder of Salon.com and researcher into the US Deep state.
