Analysis / Bias
In review, American Greatness is a blog that features a variety of writers covering American Politics. In general most articles favor the right, with moderate use of loaded language such as this: Why Ordinary Americans Are Unperturbed by Russia Mania. Most information is sourced to credible left-center, least biased and right-center sources. However, they sometimes source to Mixed factual sources such as the Daily Caller and Questionable Sources such as the Gateway Pundit.
A fact check reveals that they are clean for failed fact checks.
Overall, we rate American Greatness Right biased based on story selection that favors the right and Mixed for factual reporting due to the use of poor sources. (D. Van Zandt 1/17/2018) Updated (7/25/2018)
