Analysis / Bias
In review, Freedom News Report is an opinion based news reporting blog. There is significant use of biased loaded words in headlines such as this: Obama’s Elitists Comrades on the Run. This article, like every single article on the website, does not have an author name, nor any sourcing at all. It appears to simply be opinions rendered without evidence. In general, all stories on this website favor the right and denigrate the left. While some of the reporting may be true, without an author name or sourcing of any kind, it simply is not credible.
Overall, we rate Freedom News Report Questionable due to anonymity of writers, lack of disclosure of ownership and zero hyperlinked or MLA/APA type sourcing. (D. Van Zandt 12/10/2018)
