Analysis / Bias

In review, the blog does not publish original news, but rather utilizes other sources news and offers opinions that generally favor the right. Most stories serve as propaganda for the Trump administration such as this Trump announces his greatest accomplishment. In fact, it is not possible to find criticism of Trump on this blog. However, there is frequent denigration of liberals such as this Hillary Clinton emerges from hiding, report says. This story is sourced to tweets only. Regarding sourcing, The Horn News occasionally sources credible outlets such as USA Today, but more frequently sources poor far right sources such as the Gateway Pundit. In general, The Horn News is an extreme right wing biased source that does not always publish factual news.

A factual search reveals they have failed a couple fact checks.
