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.
Factual Reporting: MIXED
Notes: Capital Research Center (CRC) is a non-profit, right wing “think tank” organization located in Washington, D.C. Capital Research Center was founded in 1984 by Willa Johnson. Prior to founding CRC, Johnson had been Senior Vice President of the Heritage Foundation, which is a conservative think tank with a mixed record reporting facts. The Capital Research Center uses minimal loaded words and typically sources to credible information. The one area where CRC reports questionable information is on the topic of climate change where they reject the consensus of experts in the field. Some of their top donors are Exxon-Mobile and Koch Industries. Overall, we rate CRC as right biased based on political affiliation and Mixed for factual reporting based on rejection of scientific evidence. (M. Huitsing 8/28/2017)
