Analysis / Bias

In review, Just the News publishes videos, podcasts, and journalism from a conservative perspective. Articles and headlines typically do not utilize emotional language such as this: Trump’s campaign sues Wisconsin TV station for airing ‘defamatory’ ad. This story is appropriately sourced to the Washington Post and Priorities.org. Another properly sourced story with little bias is this: Pentagon invokes the Defense Production Act to make 40 million masks.

Editorially, Just the News does not label opinion content, and actually, they don’t produce op-eds; however, in examining story selection, they routinely favor President Trump such as this: Trump campaign slaps New York Times with libel suit while reporting negatively on Democrats such as this: Cruz decries ‘dangerous’ Schumer threats against justices, seeks censure. They have published misinformation during the CoronaVirus outbreak of 2020, as seen below in our failed fact checks section. In general, news reporting is not always factual and holds a moderately strong right-leaning bias.

Failed Fact Checks

It should be noted that others have accused John Solomon of promoting false conspiracy theories regarding the Biden’s and Ukraine.

Overall, we rate Just the News Questionable and Right Biased based on story selection that mostly favors a conservative perspective. We also rate them Mixed for factual reporting due to numerous failed fact checks and the promotion of conspiracy theories and right-wing propaganda. (D. Van Zandt 4/13/2020) Updated (07/12/2021)
