Factual Reporting: MIXED

Notes: Alpha News is a Minnesota online news network, they report the latest political news from the Capitol as well as local stories about government spending. According to a Star Tribune article dated March 11, 2015 — Alpha News Chief Capitol reporter Julia Erynn describes Alpha News as a “news organization” that generates revenue from advertising, and also private donors providing financial support.  According to Star Tribune “The launch of Alpha News was first promoted today by the Minnesota Tea Party Alliance on Facebook. Many of the initial news stories from Alpha News cover issues which have been advocated by the Minnesota Tea Party Alliance.”

Alpha News reports news with poor sourcing such as using a Facebook page as a primary source: Gun-Control Group Issues Apology after Blaming Pro 2nd Amendment Groups and referring to their own experiences such as here: Anti-Sharia, ANTIFA, and Assault. They demonstrate right wing bias in reporting through advocating the Tea Party platform and publishing articles that almost always favor the right. They are mixed for factual reporting due to very poor sourcing. (M. Huitsing 8/16/2017)
