Analysis / Bias
In review, Diply publishes short news and entertainment articles that are designed to go viral on social media. Diply rarely covers politics, with most stories being about celebrities such as this Guns N’ Roses Drummer Steven Adler Rushed To Hospital After Stabbing Himself. This story is sourced to TMZ, which is a questionable celebrity gossip outlet. When reporting on politics they do not cover policy, but rather individuals such as the Trump family 13+ Viral Memes About The Trump Family UK Visit. In general, these stories are negative toward President Trump.
A factual search reveals they have not failed a fact check, however due to the use of poor sources we rate them Mixed for factual reporting.
