Angry White Men occasionally uses strong loaded language in their headlines and articles such as this: Lauren Southern’s ‘Farmlands’ Is Lazy, Dishonest, And Racist. Although the wording conveys bias the articles are all very well sourced to credible information.
The website also offers a section called Cucktionary that defines terms that are used to “expose white nationalists, adherents of the alt-right movement, and other neo-reactionaries.” Angry White Men also offers their blog roll which consists of mostly left-leaning sources such as Media Matters and Think Progress as well as least biased sources such as The Conversation.
