Analysis / Bias
The website links to Dr. Robert Eberle’s Youtube channel and publishes conservative news and commentary. Most news stories are from other sources such as the Orange Country Register, Associated Press, and Fox News.
Commentary articles are usually original and always favor the right such as this Cancel Culture And Wokeness Will Destroy Our Country. This opinion piece makes claims without providing hyperlinked supporting evidence.
GOPUSA has also promoted false election fraud conspiracies such as this Attorney Sidney Powell Drops Massive Bomb: “We’ve Identified 450,000 Ballots That Miraculously Only Have A Vote For Joe Biden”. There has been no evidence of election fraud, as claimed by Sidney Powell. Regarding climate change, they are skeptical and not deniers; however, with Covid-19 they have falsely claimed Ivermectin is beneficial in the treatment and prevention of Covid-19. In general, their editorial positions align strongly with the conservative right and have promoted conspiracy theories related to Seth Rich.
