These media sources are moderately to strongly biased toward conservative causes through story selection and/or political affiliation. They may utilize strong loaded words (wording that attempts to influence an audience by using appeal to emotion or stereotypes), publish misleading reports and omit reporting of information that may damage conservative causes. Some sources in this category may be untrustworthy. See all Right Bias sources.

Analysis / Bias
In review, when examining the bias of news aggregators we look specifically at the sources they use. DML News claims to have a rating system to determine if a story is factual or not. For example, aggregated stories must provide named sources, be reported by more than one outlet, does not insert opinion or leading words, and includes supporting evidence.
A review of sources used generally falls to the right, such as the factually mixed Daily Caller, Washington Examiner, the Questionable Breitbart to more centrist publications such as The Hill. In general, DML News aggregates news that is favorable to the right and from mostly credible sources. Though some have failed fact checks.
Overall, we rate DML News Right Biased based on story selection that usually favors the right and Mixed for factual reporting due to the use of poor sources and a lack of transparency. (D. Van Zandt 1/25/2020)
