These media sources are slightly to moderately conservative in bias. They often publish factual information that utilizes loaded words (wording that attempts to influence an audience by using appeal to emotion or stereotypes) to favor conservative causes. These sources are generally trustworthy for information, but may require further investigation. See all Right-Center sources.
- Overall, we rate Freedom Alliance Right-Center biased based on pro-military advocacy and High for factual reporting due to a clean fact check record.

In review, The Freedom Alliance provides support and funds to help wounded personnel as well provides scholarships to children of fallen soldiers. They describe their vision as “A national security strategy which deters wars that are avoidable; wins wars that are inevitable; and never forgets those who go to war on our nation’s behalf.” In other words, Freedom Alliance supports a strong, well funded military, but also wants to help those who have served.
The website site offers a wide variety of ways to support the troops, such as hosting retreats to setting up rehab and recovery funds. The website also contains a news section that provides press releases regarding the activities of the Freedom Alliance. There is minimal bias in the articles such as this: COMBAT VETERAN RECEIVES MORTGAGE-FREE HOME. In general, this is not a news source, but rather an advocacy and charity group.
A factual search reveals they have never failed a fact check.
Overall, we rate Freedom Alliance Right-Center biased based on pro-military advocacy and High for factual reporting due to a clean fact check record. (D. Van Zandt 7/5/2019)
