Analysis / Bias

We will break this source down using our criteria. First, we look at wording and headlines. With these, the Conservative Firing Line heavily uses emotionally loaded words that are pro-right and anti-left. An example of a highly biased headline is as follows: Kid Rock triggers liberal snowflakes with true statement about life and hard work… Using the words “triggers liberal snowflakes” is about as extreme as you can get using loaded words to sway readers emotionally.

Next, we look at sourcing and factual reporting. In this area, the Conservative Firing Line manages to source their information. However, there are many cases when they source from far-right media sources or other questionable sources, such as Uncle Sam’s Misguided Children and the Gateway Pundit, which has a poor track record with fact checkers.

We also found evidence of CFL publishing unproven conspiracies such as the Clinton’s murdering multiple people. Within this article about the Clintons, they source numerous questionable and conspiracy websites.

They also frequently publish false information about Covid-19: Covid Jabs Killing 300X More People Every Year Than All 70+ FDA-Approved Vaccines Combined and election fraud: ‘Rigged’ Shows Mark Zuckerberg Single-Handedly Enabled Rampant Fraud In 2020 Election. This last story comes from the discredited Natural News website. In general, the Conservative Firing Line is far-right biased and Very Low in factual reporting.
