Analysis / Bias
Most articles favor the right and are anti-left. There is the moderate use of emotionally loaded words in headlines such as: “Hypocrisy in Liberal Racism,” and there is very little sourcing. American Liberty Report utilizes quotes vs. links, making it difficult to verify the context and facts of the information.
Throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, they have promoted misleading information such as this Bombshell: Spanish Nursing Homes Beat COVID with Zero Deaths, Hospitalizations, or Vaccines. In this article, they encourage unproven pseudoscience without a single link to a source “The only treatment that 75% of them received as cheap allergy medicine, a Z-Pac prescription, Tylenol and a baking-soda-and-water gargle.” This is false.
Failed Fact Checks
- Third-Party fact-checkers have not reviewed them.
Overall, we rate The American Liberty Report Right Biased and Questionable due to a complete lack of transparency, poor sourcing, and demonstrably false claims. (D. Van Zandt 10/5/2017) Updated (10/6/2021)
