Analysis / Bias
TeamDML features a free news aggregation/curation service and paid subscription content consisting of live programming, podcasts, and educational products.
TeamDML’s news feed consists of an opening commentary (conservative-leaning) that is followed by a snippet of a summary from the source. Articles and headlines use emotionally loaded wording, such as this REPORT: Bombshell FBI report contradicts Alec Baldwin’s key claim about tragedy on set. The DML News aggregator draws upon a mix of credible sources such as NBC News and ABC News and less reliable sources such as the New York Post and Daily Mail.
Editorially, story selection favors the right, while opinion content strongly supports former President Trump, such as this Trump has huge night, what it means for midterms. Generally, aggregated news is mostly factual but sometimes relies on poor sources. Politically, DML News holds a right conservative bias.
