Some sources in this category may be untrustworthy. See all Right Bias sources.
- Overall, we rate ConservativeHQ right biased based on story selection and editorial positions that always favor the right. We also rate them Mixed for factual reporting due to the use of sources on our questionable list for failed fact checks and a moderate lack of transparency with authors.

Analysis / Bias
In review, ConservativeHQ provides a combination of original reporting and links to outside sources. Original reporting is often credited to staff, such as this Obama’s Ghost Haunts Coronavirus Response. This story, like some, is entirely unsourced to credible outside information. The website also features a section called “Assault on America,” which seems to date when Democrats took over the House of Representatives in November of 2018. For example, this story: Assault on America, Day 436: Questions debate moderators should ask Bernie & Joe on Sunday is sourced properly to various sources, including CNN, Business Insider, Washington Times, and the Questionable CNS News. Other news is directly linked to outside right-leaning sources such as National Review, Townhall, and the New York Post.
In general, ConsertvativeHQ holds a strong right bias but occasionally uses poor sources which fail fact checks.
Failed Fact Checks
- None by a third-party fact checker.
