Analysis / Bias

In review, We Are Change publishes news and commentary from a right-leaning bias that is often conspiratorial. Articles and headlines use loaded emotional headlines such as this JEFFREY TOOBIN FIRED FROM NEW YORKER FOR JERKING OFF DURING ZOOM CALL. Other articles contain headlines such as this BIDEN WILL HAVE THE MOST DIVERSE, INTERSECTIONAL CABINET OF MASS MURDERERS EVER ASSEMBLED. While the intent of this article is to highlight a pro-war perspective of the Democratic party, which is a fair debate, the headline itself is divisive and clickbait. Further, according to the SPLC “We Are Change (WAC) is an organization that likes to quote Martin Luther King Jr., Einstein, Gandhi and others talking about the evils of war. It describes itself as a nonviolent “citizens based grassroots peace and social justice movement” and reacted angrily this year when the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) categorized it as part of the conspiracy-obsessed, antigovernment “Patriot” movement. WAC’s leader, Luke Rudkowski, complained at the time that the SPLC said nothing of WAC’s alleged “raising money for 9/11 first responders, toy drives during the holidays, clothing drives and feeding the homeless.” In general, this source provides a mix of real news and speculation that is often sensationalized and not always factual.
