Analysis / Bias
Conservative Underground News does not publish original news stories but rather interjects right-wing biased opinions around news stories. All stories favor the right and often harshly denigrate the left, such as this: Ron DeSantis was all smiles after he was handed this unexpected victory over Gavin Newsom. This story does not use hyperlinked sourcing on information they are referencing.
Editorially, all stories strongly favor the right such as this Karine Jean-Pierre is in hot water after a social media post from her past came back to bite her, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez hung her head in shame after a Democrat made this massive blunder. In general, many stories on this website advance right-wing pro-Trump conspiracy theories and propaganda while sometimes using poor sources such as Breitbart.
