History

Analysis / Bias

In review, it is difficult to decide where to begin. First, this wiki was created to combat the so-called liberal bias of Wikipedia, which from what we can see, is not overly biased. Therefore, this is a right-biased Wiki to counter a generally low-biased Wiki. It isn’t apparent. The sole purpose of Conservapedia is to refute so-called liberal bias. Wiki pages on Conservapedia often lead to very poor sources, such as the Washington Examiner and The Blaze, which have all failed numerous fact checks.

They are also borderline on hate group status, consistent negative reporting on LGBTQ, Climate Change, Racism, Border Security and people of color, Atheism, and Liberals. You really cannot find a more negative site regarding progress than this. Even today, Conservapedia still has false information regarding former President Obama’s birth certificate. In general, Conservapedia is a highly unreliable source of information; while Wikipedia has some issues, nothing compares to this wiki’s bias and outright misleading nature.

Overall, we rate Conservapedia Questionable based on extreme right-wing bias, promotion of propaganda and conspiracies, and outright false information. This is not a credible source on any level or known criteria. (D. Van Zandt 8/21/2016) (D. Van Zandt 07/22/2022)
