These media sources are moderately to strongly biased toward conservative causes through story selection and/or political affiliation. They may utilize strong loaded words (wording that attempts to influence an audience by using appeal to emotion or stereotypes), publish misleading reports and omit reporting of information that may damage conservative causes. Some sources in this category may be untrustworthy. See all Right Bias sources.

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.
