Analysis / Bias
In review, 24 News takes a current right biased news story and interjects opinion around the content. Article headlines contain loaded emotional language such as this: Ocasio-Cortez Attacks PRAYER After New Zealand Mosque Attack, Twitter Explodes from All Sides. News stories are generally sourced to reasonable media outlets or videos and Tweets. However, in some cases, they use Questionable sources such as ILoveMyFreedom. In general, story selection always favors the right and denigrates the left.
A factual search does not turn up any failed fact checks, however, some of the sources used by this website have failed numerous fact checks.
Overall, we rate 24 News Questionable based on extreme right-wing bias, promotion of propaganda, and a total lack of transparency. (D. Van Zandt 3/16/2019) Updated (10/8/2020)
