Analysis / Bias
In review, For the Right News primarily publishes pro-Conservative and pro-Trump opinion commentary. Headlines and wording is often very emotional favoring the right such as this: Democrat Impeachment Campaign is a Smokescreen for Democrats Do-Nothing Agenda and this: The Weather Channel is Pushing Climate Scare Propaganda. Neither of these stories contain hyperlinked sourcing to validate their claims. In general, this is a right wing propaganda site that completely lacks credibility through lack of sourcing and transparency.
A factual search reveals they have not been fact checked.
Overall, we rate For the Right News Questionable based on extreme right bias, poor sourcing, promotion of propaganda and a complete lack of transparency. (D. Van Zandt 11/15/2019)
