These media sources are moderately to strongly biased toward conservative causes through story selection and/or political affiliation. They may utilize strong loaded words (wording that attempts to influence an audience by using appeal to emotion or stereotypes), publish misleading reports, and omit information that may damage conservative causes. Some sources in this category may be untrustworthy. See all Right Bias sources.

Founded in 2014, Conservative Review claims on their website that they “provide best-in-class analysis and commentary on conservative political speech, votes, positions, and elections.” In October 2016, Conservative Review launched CRTV, an online television network, with shows by Mark Levin, Michelle Malkin, Steven Crowder, Mark Steyn, Gavin McInnes, Steve Deace, and Matt Kibbe. Steyn’s show was canceled in February 2017. Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson joined the lineup in October 2017. Eric Bolling joined the lineup in summer 2018. The Website’s Editor-in-Chief is Mark Levin, who has a poor track record with facts.
As of 2021, Conservative Review is a news aggregation/curation website and no longer offers CRTV.

Analysis / Bias
In review, the website no longer provides original news and opinion content but rather republishes or links to other media sources. Our review indicates that they link to mostly right-leaning and questionable sources such as The Federalist, The Blaze, Daily Wire, and Daily Caller. The sources they reference have failed numerous fact checks.
Conservative Review is best known for its Liberty Score, in which they rate politicians on their conservative voting records. The Liberty Score has been used widely and is occasionally used to aid in fact-checking.
Editorially, all stories reviewed favor the right while some denigrate the left. Finally, during the Coronavirus pandemic, they frequently downplayed the virus using misleading wording, calling it a “Coronavirus Cult.” In general, the Liberty Score is a credible source of information that is referenced by fact-checkers; however, the curated news content usually links to poor sources with right-leaning bias.
Failed Fact Checks
- Muslim organizations or a mosque kept most of the $238,634 raised for the victims of an October 2018 mass shooting at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh. – False
- The sources they link to have poor fact-check records.
Overall, we rate Conservative Review Right Biased based on conservative political positions and Mixed for factual reporting due to poor sources who have poor records with fact-checkers. (7/18/2016) Updated (D. Van Zandt 7/25/2021)
