These media sources are moderately to strongly biased toward conservative causes through story selection and/or political affiliation. They may utilize strong loaded words (wording that attempts to influence an audience by using appeal to emotion or stereotypes), publish misleading reports and omit reporting of information that may damage conservative causes. Some sources in this category may be untrustworthy.

Notes: The American Spectator, is a conservative U.S. monthly magazine covering news and politics, edited by R. Emmett Tyrrell, Jr. and published by the non-profit American Spectator Foundation. Primarily focuses on economics with a right wing bias. Although the American Spectator is biased and uses loaded language especially in headlines, we could not find any failed fact checks from credible sources. (7/18/2016) Updated (D. Van Zandt 4/5/2017)
