Analysis / Bias

In review, the Lone Conservative features young conservative writers who report with a moderately strong right-wing bias. Most headlines contain moderately loaded language, but some are very strong such as this one: Don’t Buy Beto’s Disgraceful False Equivalence on the NFL Protests. The content of articles is generally well written, researched, and sourced; however, sometimes they source questionable sources such as Dinish D’Souza, who has a poor track record with fact-checkers. The use of sources like Dinesh D’Souza reduces the credibility of what could have been a strong, informative article.

Failed Fact Checks

  • None by third-party fact-checkers.

Overall, we rate the Lone Conservative Right Biased based on story selection that favors the right and Mixed for factual reporting due to the use of sources that have failed fact checks. (D. Van Zandt 9/21/2018) Updated (03/10/2023)
