Analysis / Bias

In review, The CSP publishes news related to USA security with a focus on the dangers of Islam. News headlines are somewhat sensationalized and often demonize Islam such as this: Gaffney: Christian persecution taking place around the world is “simply unimaginable”. This story was published on the Questionable Breitbart News

Editorially, CSP favors President Trump such as this: The Anti-Trump Conspiracy Probe Goes Criminal and denigrates the left such as this: AOC’s Weak Attempt to Paint Trump’s Criticism of Rep. Schiff as “Anti-Semitic”. This latter story is properly sourced. 

Media Bias Fact Check does not determine if a source is a hate group or not, but we do provide third party observations which you can find below.
