These media sources are slightly to moderately conservative in bias.

These sources are generally trustworthy for information, but may require further investigation. See all Right-Center sources.

Notes: The Deseret News is a newspaper published in Salt Lake City, Utah, United States. It is Utah’s oldest continuously published daily newspaper and has the largest Sunday circulation in the state and the second largest daily circulation behind The Salt Lake Tribune. The editorial tone of the Deseret News is usually described as moderate to conservative, and is often assumed to reflect the values of its owner, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. For example, the newspaper does not accept advertising that violates church standards. DN uses minimal loaded words and always sources to credible information. Bias is based on somewhat conservative political positions. (11/3/2016) Updated (D. Van Zandt 4/21/2017)
