Bipartisan Report completely lacks transparency through a missing about page and non-disclosure of ownership, however they do provide emails for their writers.

Analysis / Bias
In review, Bipartisan Report is not bipartisan in any way, shape or form. Story selection always favors the left and often uses very strong emotionally loaded language such as this: Acosta Trolls Trump On National Television As WH Panic Sets In and Trump Sweats Certain Impeachment Doom On Twitter. This latter story is sourced to tweets. Editorially, Bipartisan Report is 100% left, with consistent denigration of the right such as this: AOC Thrashes McConnell After His Supporters Grope & Choke Cardboard Cutout. In general, this is a clickbait website that sells sensationalism and misleads through emotional wording.
