These media sources are moderately to strongly biased toward conservative causes through story selection and/or political affiliation. They may utilize strong loaded words (wording that attempts to influence an audience by using appeal to emotion or stereotypes), publish misleading reports and omit reporting of information that may damage conservative causes. Some sources in this category may be untrustworthy.
Factual Reporting: MIXED
Notes: USSA News is a news and opinion website established in 2010 in response to the passage of the Affordable Care Act (ACA-Obamacare). The tagline for this website is “The Tea Party’s Front Page”, which indicates a right wing/pseudo-libertarian position. USSA News has an about page that describes its mission. This about page also lists facts such as a 20 trillion dollar debt to prove how inefficient and wasteful the government is. Further, the about page contains an entirely false so called fact that reads “Illegal aliens have more rights than most citizens.” This is false.
In review, USSA News uses moderately loaded language in headlines and articles. They typically source their information well, but many times it is to other right wing sites with a mixed factual track record. For example, they use the Daily Signal and Christian Post as sources of information. Both of these sources have Mixed factual ratings by our standards. Lastly, all articles on this website favor the right and/or libertarian positions. Overall, we rate USSA News Right Biased and Mixed for factual reporting. (D. Van Zandt 12/19/2017)
