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 Citizen Free Press Right Biased for story selection and Mixed for factual reporting due to use of some poor sources and a complete lack of transparency.

Citizen Free Press does not have an about page, disclaimer, or any information regarding who is behind the website. A Whois search shows the domain was registered privately in 2016. The only information we can glean from the website is someone named Kane is the admin and publishes all the articles.
Funded by / Ownership
Again, Citizen Free Press does not disclose financial or ownership information and there does not appear to be a means of revenue generation.
Analysis / Bias
In review, Citizen Free Press really only does two things, they either link to other right biased news stories or they publish their own, often with minimal dialogue that relies on video or tweet sourcing. When publishing their own stories, they often use loaded emotional headlines such as this: Black MSNBC Pundit Feels The HEAT After Making Light of Mollie Tibbetts’ Murder… When linking to outside sources they mostly utilize right-leaning media. Many are rated Mixed for factual reporting such as Lifezette and Daily Caller, and some Questionable such as Breitbart and conspiracy website Zerohedge. For the most part, they link to mainstream sources as long as it supports the right and/or denigrates the left.
Failed Fact Checks
- A video shows protesters and members of antifa attacking the Texas Children’s Hospital and terrorizing a child during spring 2020 demonstrations against police brutality. – False
