Analysis / Bias

The Independent Minute does not appear to publish original content but rather serve as a curated news aggregation website. Typically, they publish a full article with a link to the source or a short snippet that links offsite to the source. The Independent Minute leaves the original headlines, which often contain highly emotional wording that favors the right such as this What They Just Revealed About Disposable Face Masks Will Make You…. The website also features sensationalized clickbait news stories such as This Confessed Surgery Addict Had Something New To Show Off, And It….

For news aggregation sites, we check the quality of the sources they utilize. In this case, Independent Minute almost exclusively relies on far-right Questionable or Conspiracy websites for political reporting, such as the Gateway Pundit and American Web Media. The Independent Minute generally holds a far-right editorial bias through story selection and consistently rely on poor sources who routinely fail fact checks.
