Analysis / Bias
In review, America Daily publishes podcasts, radio programs, and news with a strong conservative bias. Articles and headlines frequently use loaded emotional wording such as this NY Attorney Slams Gov. Cuomo’s Illegal Coronavirus Tyranny. This story is sourced to a video from the factually mixed The New American. America Daily often promotes pseudoscience and conspiracy theories such as this article promoting anti-vaccination propaganda Danger in Vaccines. The website also promotes conspiracies related to 5G, the deep state, and climate change misinformation.
Editorially, there is a strong right-wing bias through the promotion of the conservative agenda as well as denigration of the left such as this A UN Rogues’ Gallery: Socialists, Communists, Terrorists, Globalists Run the Show. In general, this is a far-right website that promotes pseudoscience and conspiracy theories.
