These media sources are moderately to strongly biased toward conservative causes through story selection and/or political affiliation.

Some sources in this category may be untrustworthy. See all Right Bias sources.

Factual Reporting: MIXED

Notes: The Federalist Society for Law and Public Policy Studies, most frequently called the Federalist Society, is an organization of conservatives and libertarians seeking reform of the current American legal system in accordance with a textualist or originalist interpretation of the U.S. Constitution. It is one of the nation’s most influential legal organizations.

In review, the Federalist Society’s main purpose is to ensure that conservative judges are appointed. The Federalist Society is opposed to so called liberal public education, reproductive choice, labor regulations, environmental laws and is highly pro-2nd amendment. The website has a blog that covers these issues with a strong right wing bias in reporting. There is moderate use of loaded words and not all articles are sourced. Overall, we rate the Federalist Society Right Biased and Mixed for factual reporting based on poor sourcing and some questionable scientific views. (D. Van Zandt 11/9/2016)
