Factual Reporting: MIXED

Notes: 71 Republic is a libertarian blog that was founded by three teens; Matthew Geiger, Ryan Manthy, and Mason Mohon. 71 Republic describes its mission as “We are a news startup centered around spreading the message of Libertarianism to the common man and enabling people with a third viewpoint, other than the typical conservative and liberal perspectives.”

The focus of the site is digital journalism essays written by other members, mostly teenagers. With that said, 71 Republic offers a lot of opinions and uses minimal sourcing to back their claims. There is also minimal use of loaded language, however most articles favor the right through support of Austrian Economics and some Christian perspectives. Overall, this is a moderately right biased blog that is mixed for factual reporting based on lack of sourcing. (M. Huitsing 9/6/2017)
