Founded in 2016, Conservative Ammo is a hyper-partisan website that aggregates news from other sources and describe themselves as a “repository of information for conservative content.” Their about page explains that “ConservativeAmmo.com was started to provide a searchable source of content that isn’t plagued with mainstream media and left-wing radical news sites that are “shoehorned” to the top of the search results so the viewer can never find the conservative viewpoint on the topic.” The founder is listed as Bode Lang.
Funded by / Ownership
Conservative Ammo lacks transparency in ownership, but it is assumed to be owned by its founder Bode Lang. Revenue appears to be derived solely through donations.
Analysis / Bias
In review, Conservative Ammo does not produce original content, but rather links to other sources that support their conservative narrative. Some of the sources they link to include: Hate Group FrontPage Magazine, Questionable PJ Media, Questionable Breitbart, the hate group Jihadwatch, as well as the unreliable right biased Daily Wire. Essentially, every news story on this website comes from a source that has either failed a fact check or is an outright fake news/hate group. In general, Conservative Ammo is as credible as the sources they use, which are not credible on any level according to our methodology.
Conservative Ammo has not been fact checked because they republish other sources work.
Overall, we rate Conservative Ammo Questionable based on extreme right wing bias, poor use of sources, lack of transparency and re-publication of fake news. (D. Van Zandt 2/24/2020)
