Analysis / Bias
The Easton Gazette is a conservative imposter website that is designed to look like a legitimate local newspaper. All of the websites use the same design template using an old newspaper font for their logos.
The website publishes local news related to Maryland that routinely favors the right, such as this: 22 RINOs Vote Against Jordan In Second Round In Effort To Hand House To Democrats – Liz Cheney For Speaker!! This article is sourced from social media.
Editorially, all stories favor the right, and particularly former President Trump, such as BREAKING EXPLOSIVE: SHOCKING ATTEMPT TO HIDE THE TRUTH UNCOVERED! ES&S ACCUSED OF BLOCKING ACCESS TO CRUCIAL ELECTION RECORDS NATIONWIDE! MASSIVE ELECTION FRAUD EXPOSED, PRESIDENT TRUMP VINDICATED. While denigrating the left with conspiracy theories like this The Biden Administration And The Threat Of Another Attack On America.
The Easton Gazette also promotes Covid-19 disinformation. In general, this is an imposter website that promotes extreme right-wing conspiracy theories and pseudoscience.
Failed Fact Checks

Overall, we rate The Easton Gazette as an extreme right-biased imposter website and Questionable based on the promotion of propaganda, conspiracy theories, pseudoscience, poor sourcing, and false claims. (D. Van Zandt 10/20/2023)
