Analysis / Bias

Mad World News is an extreme right wing biased news and opinion website that always favors the right.  There is frequent use of loaded emotional headlines such as this: NYC Muslim Wannabe Jihadist Tries To Set Fire To Gas Pump, Doesn’t End Well. When not reporting pro-Trump propaganda they often report on crimes committed specifically by Muslims and Africa Americans.

Mad World News routinely misrepresents facts and has a poor track record with fact checkers. It is also listed on the Politifact fake news list.

Overall, we rate Mad World News Questionable based on extreme right wing bias and failed fact checks. (11/25/2016) Updated (D. Van Zandt 8/11/2018)
