History

Founded in 2014, Media Equalizer is a news and opinion blog with a strong right wing bias in reporting. They do not have an about page to describe their mission, however they do have a contact page that indicates they are from Massachusetts. They do list author names with short bios. An editor is not indicated.

Funded by / Ownership

Ownership is not disclosed on the website and funding is primarily derived from online advertising and donations.

Analysis / Bias

In review, all articles favor the right and discredit the left. There is significant use of loaded emotional language in articles such as this: 2020 Alert! Creepy Joe gives timetable on decision, claims he’s ‘most qualified person’ to be president. Sourcing is typically to other right biased sources such as Fox News, who has a poor track record with fact checkers and some are not sourced at all.

A factual search reveals that Media Equalizer has never been fact checked by an IFCN fact checker.

Overall, we rate Media Equalizer Right Biased due to wording and story selection that favors the right and Mixed for factual reporting based on poor sourcing and lack of ownership details. (D. Van Zandt 9/13/2017) Updated (12/05/2018)
