Analysis / Bias

The Conservative Tribune displays extreme right wing/conservative bias through the use a strongly loaded emotional wording such as this “Scalise Digs Up Obama Dirt, Uses It To Completely Destroy Trump’s Russia Critics.” The CT sources their information either through videos, tweets and occasionally factually mixed sources such as the Daily Wire. Story selection always favors the right while denigrating the left.
