Analysis / Bias

Most headlines utilize loaded words to sensationalize the stories they are republishing. For example, this headline uses the word “delusional” to describe liberals: “Kellyanne Uses Props to Help Liberals With Their Delusional Trump-Russia Collusion Story (Video).” This type of wording already sways the reader to view liberals negatively. Defiant America makes an effort to source their information, however many times; they link back to far-right or other questionable sources such as the American Mirror. Finally, this source also publishes conspiracy stories such as this one about Chemtrails being real.

Recently they have published misleading stories such as this Photos Are Released From Maskless Joe And Jill Biden As They Meet Jimmy Carter, 96, And Wife Rosalynn, 93 In Their Home – The “First Couple” Put Their Masks On As Soon As They Left The House. All parties involved were vaccinated at the time of the photo and did not require a mask per guidelines. In general, Defiant America publishes false or misleading information that favors the right in an attempt to promote propaganda.
