Analysis / Bias
In review, we will focus on the website as that is what is available to check. The website has headlines that are loaded with sensationalism such as Dear Violent Liberal Rioters: YOU Are the Fascist Nazis!. Within this article, there is not a single link to an outside credible source. Every link links to another Louder With Crowder article, which is a red flag for a credible source. When it comes to science, Steven Crowder is not a fan of the consensus when it comes to climate change such as this: Sorry, But You Can’t Scare Me Into Believing Man-Made Climate Change Hysteria. Louder with Crowder attempts to source their information, however, it mostly links back to previous articles on the website or to other right-leaning sources such as Campus Reform and the Washington Free Beacon. Steven Crowder also frequently criticizes transgender persons with articles such as this: Dear Gay-Trans Bullies: Sorry, the Rest of Us Still Have Rights… In general, all stories favor the right and denigrate the left with the use of strong emotionally loaded headlines.
