Founded in 2017 and based in Florida, American People Daily is an anonymously run hyperpartisan conservative news and opinion website.

Funded by / Ownership
American People Daily does not disclose ownership and generates revenue through advertising.
Analysis / Bias
In review, American People Daily does not produce original news stories but offers commentary on the news. Articles and headlines often contain highly charged emotional wording that favors the right and denigrates the left, such as this Disgusting! White Segregation Under Way in Chicago and this Kamala’s V.P. Nomination Makes Her the First Place Loser.
Further, this source presents opinions with a sycophantic view of former President Trump such as this Genius! Trump Finds a Legal Way to Stifle Democratic Votes. When it comes to sourcing information, there are zero hyperlinks to be found to support claims. None!
Editorially, which is all this website presents, comes from a far-right perspective with many articles opposed to immigration. They also make unsubstantiated claims (no sourcing) such as this “People like Pelosi and Chuck Schumer would love to see illegals have the upper hand when it comes to voting.” In general, this website appears to be the opinions of a single anonymous person who glorifies conservatives and denigrates liberals without evidence to support their claims.
