In review, Citizen Truth features citizen journalists from a wide range of backgrounds. Headlines and articles utilize moderately loaded emotional wording such as this: THE HYPOCRISY OF TRUMP ACCUSING CHINA OF ELECTION MEDDLING. However, all information in articles is very well sourced to credible media outlets such as the BBC.
