Analysis / Bias
In review, Constative.com covers clickbait-style news such as “British Habits Americans Will Never Understand.” Under the news section, they typically cover travel information with minimal bias, such as this “Current Hawaii Vacation Travel Restrictions and Rules.” Headlines typically reflect the content of articles; however, information is poorly sourced. For example, they report on the restrictions in place; however, no sources are used or hyperlinks for reference.
Editorially, Constative.com does not directly cover politics; however, they publish entertainment news as it relates to politics. For example, under this listicle “27 Famous People Who Said Really Dumb Things,” they quote President Biden, “If we do everything right if we do it with absolute certainty, there’s still a 30% chance we’re going to get it wrong.” In this case, they appropriately link to the New York Times. Another example, under a listicle titled “25 Facts About Trump Tower You Never Knew,” they use various facts about Trump Tower. To read all the information, you have to click forward to the next page 25 times; hence this is a clickbait website. A thorough review of political content demonstrates a more negative tone toward left-leaning politicians.
