Analysis / Bias
In review, American Conservative Media is a blog that produces conservative opinions and summarized news stories. Articles and headlines often contain moderately loaded wording such as this: Democrats Allow For Illegals To Receive Next Stimulus Checks. This story does not contain hyperlinked sourcing. In fact, none of the stories reviewed contain sourcing of information. A thorough review of articles reveals that all favor the right, without presenting opposing viewpoints such as this: President Trump was right, again. In general, this a website that poorly sources information and holds a strong right-leaning bias.
