right07RIGHT BIAS

These media sources are moderately to strongly biased toward conservative causes through story selection and/or political affiliation. They may utilize strong loaded words (wording that attempts to influence an audience by using appeal to emotion or stereotypes), publish misleading reports and omit reporting of information that may damage conservative causes. Some sources in this category may be untrustworthy. See all Right Bias sources.

Factual Reporting: MIXED

Notes: Just Facts is a deceptive site because they do use facts, but not all the facts in order to mask their right Bias. Example:
On their article http://www.justfacts.com/racialissues.asp#affirmative, they use the Richard Sander’s (law professor at UCLA) essay “A Systematic Analysis of Affirmative Action in American Law Schools.” To support much of their hypothesis, obviously against affirmative action (seeming also to support the notion of black intellectual abilities being inferior). No mention is made of articles published after debunking the methodology by which Sander came to his conclusions. Two such articles: http://dho.stanford.edu/research/sander.pdf and http://harvardpolitics.com/covers/matters-mismatch-debate-affirmative-actions-effectiveness/.

Excerpt from the 2nd link:
“…in a review of Sander and journalist Stuart Taylor, Jr.’s 2012 book Mismatch: How Affirmative Action Hurts Students It’s Intended to Help, and Why Universities Won’t Admit It for the Los Angeles Review of Books, and in a later article cowritten with University of Iowa law professor Angela Onwuachi-Willig in the Texas Law Review, William Kidder, the assistant executive vice chancellor of University of California, Riverside, criticized several of Sander’s methodological choices, including combining data on law school admissions rates from 1991 with bar-passage rates from a decade afterward. Kidder quoted several previous papers that argued against Sander’s dramatic conclusion that without affirmative action, there would be more black lawyers. Sander’s statistical analysis, Kidder claimed, ignored that many black law students under affirmative action would simply not attend law school at all without it.”

Furthermore, a glance at their sister site justfactsdaily.com gives you their right bias right off the top from just the article headers. (F. Locke Siewert)
