Funded by / Ownership

The website does not disclose ownership; however, under the “about” page, Jacob Engels is listed as the entrepreneur who runs the East Orlando Post (Central Florida Post). According to a 2019 article by the left-leaning Daily Beast, Jacob Engels is described as a conservative “political activist” who is a “mini-me” of former President Trump confidant Roger Stone.

Analysis / Bias

In review, the Central Florida Post covers Florida and national politics from a conservative perspective. Articles and headlines often contain emotionally loaded language, such as “Democrat Failed Qualifying & Lied About Degrees, Orlando Sentinel Knew About It.” This story relies on reasonable sources such as the Jacksonville Daily Record, The Guardian, and blogs such as pgcpsmess.com. However, in other stories, we have found they rely on Questionable sources such as the Gateway Pundit, which routinely fails fact checks.

Editorially, Story selection always favors the right and denigrates the left, such as “Allie Braswell: Wokeness Pioneer, Cop-Hater, Potential Military Disability Abuser?”  And “FL Residents Roger Stone & Jacob Engels Appear In New Film About Media Propaganda Alongside Alex Jones.” Finally, the Central Florida Post has promoted debunked conspiracy theories such as the Seth Rich conspiracy and unfounded election fraud claims relying on the debunked 2000 Mules video by Dinesh D’Souza. In general, the Central Florida Post is a far-right biased imposter website that frequently promotes misinformation.

Failed Fact Checks

Overall, we rate the Central Florida Post Far-Right biased and Questionable based on the promotion of right-wing propaganda, conspiracy theories, the use of poor sources, a lack of transparency, false claims, and a site designed to look like a credible local news website (imposter site).
