Analysis / Bias
In review, Far Left Watch is a news blog that specifically attempts to expose Antifa as a violent extremist group. Far Left Watch uses moderate loaded words in headlines such as this: Letting the ADL define “hate” is a really bad idea. All stores published are anti-left and one sided, however all articles are very well sourced to credible media. We also could not find any instances of failed fact checks.
Overall, we rate Far Left Watch strongly Right Biased based on story selection that favors the right and Mixed for factual reporting due to a complete lack of transparency. (D. Van Zandt 12/3/2017) Updated (2/9/2019)
