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.
Factual Reporting: MIXED
Notes: First in Freedom Daily (FFD) is an online conservative publication. FFD is run by Mustard Seed Media, LLC. (MSM). MSM is owned and operated by Kurt and Kristen Luidhardt, who also run the Prosper Group, which supports Republican politicians and causes. Additionally, FFD is primarily focused on issues regarding N. Carolina, and its rating based on their political coverage only. The stories on FFD run the gamut from factual and moderate, such as the article regarding Philadelphia’s lawsuit against Attorney General Jeff Sessions to extreme right wing in nature, such as the story regarding Charlotte City Councilwoman Dimple Ajmera. There are no bylines for the stories on FFD other than “THE WIRE”, which appears to be a collection of right wing articles from various sources. While there is some moderate and factual content on FFD, the preponderance of right wing stories earns them a Right Bias rating. (D. Kelley 9/1/2017)
