World Press Freedom Rank: USA 48/180
Founded in 2017, 2nd Amendment Daily News is a far right conservative news and opinion website that advocates for gun rights. According to their about page they state “Gritty, real life stories of law-abiding people who are forced to use a firearm to defend themselves and their loved ones! Are you prepared for this?”
This website completely lacks transparency as they do not name authors or disclose ownership.
Funding / Ownership
2nd Amendment Daily News does not disclose ownership and revenue is derived through advertising and sponsored content.
Analysis / Bias
In review, 2nd Amendment Daily News publishes news and opinion pieces related to firearms, legislation and gun defense from an extreme right perspective. Headlines and articles frequently denigrate Democrats and liberal policies such as this: Radical Gun Grabber Exposed in Special Idaho Election and this David Hogg’s Delusions: Wants His Body Used As a Prop If He Dies By Gun Violence. This second story concerning David Hogg is sourced to tweets and states that David Hogg is being funded by Michael Bloomberg and George Soros, which simply is a false claim. In general, 2nd Amendment Daily News routinely publishes pro-gun propaganda and conspiracies that are not factual.
A factual search reveals they have yet to be fact checked by an IFCN fact checker.
Overall, we rate 2nd Amendment Daily News Questionable based on extreme right wing bias, promotion of propaganda and conspiracies as well as poor sourcing and a complete lack of transparency. (D. Van Zandt 11/28/2019)
