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. See all Right Bias sources.
- Overall, we rate I Bleed Red White and Blue, Right Biased based on story selection and editorial positions that usually favor the right.

Analysis / Bias
In review, under their “news” tab, I Bleed Red White and Blue republishes news directly from the right leaning-factually mixed, Daily Caller. They also publish interviews with conservative figures and provide links to view our country’s founding documents. Under the “videos” tab they publish video clips from other news outlets such as such as CNN or Al Jazeera, often with biased or misleading headlines that favor the right, such as this: Democrat Ilhan Omar “Gleefully discussing Al-Qaeda and Hezbollah.”
In general, when reporting news, I Bleed Red White and Blue does not use original content, but rather republishes from the Daily Caller, which is right biased and has failed several fact checks.
Overall, we rate I Bleed Red White and Blue, Right Biased based on story selection and editorial positions that usually favor the right. We also rate them Mixed for factual reporting due to using the Daily Caller as their primary source of news content as well as completely lacking transparency of ownership. (D.
