Analysis / Bias
In review, Conservative Politics Today publishes memes, videos and news stories that consistently favor the right and often denigrate the left. As indicated on their about page, all information related to President Trump is positive. When publishing news articles all of them come from the MAGA Daily Report, which we have rated as Questionable due to a lack of transparency as well as use of poor sources who frequently fail fact checks. A sample news article from the MAGA Daily Reports uses loaded emotional language such as this: Mitt Romney Stabs Trump In Back, Introduces Bill To Block POTUS From Taking Funds For Border Wall. In general, this Facebook page publishes far right biased content from poor sources.
Overall, we rate Conservative Politics Today Questionable based on Extreme Right Wing Bias and the use of a poor source that has been rated Questionable. (D. Van Zandt 9/10/2019)
