Analysis / Bias
In review, ConservativeHQ provides a combination of original reporting as well as 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 completely unsourced to credible outside information. The website also features a section called “Assault on America”, which seems to date to the time 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 a wide variety of 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.
A factual search reveals they have not been fact checked by an IFCN fact checker.
Overall, we rate ConservativeHQ right biased based on story selection and editorial positions that always favor the right.
