Analysis / Bias

Mic Drop Politics does not conduct original reporting; instead, they summarize news articles or directly plagiarize them without giving credit. The website publishes sports stories, international, health, and politics from sometimes credible sources such as Reuters and Questionable sources such as Just The News and the Gateway Pundit.

Editorially, political-related stories favor the right and often promote misinformation regarding Covid-19. For example, they republished an article from the Gateway Pundit titled UK HEALTH SECURITY AGENCY RELEASES DATA SHOWS MOST COVID-19 DEATHS IN ENGLAND ARE FULLY VACCINATED. This story is rated false by PolitiFact. In another story sourced from the Questionable 100% Fed Up, they demonstrate far-right bias in wording with this “After China Mitch McConnell came out yesterday with his back-stabbing, communist-loving, freedom-hating submission to his Chinese masters, many people wonder just what a contingency election would look like in Congress, thanks to real conservatives sending dueling electors to Capitol Hill.” In general, they routinely publish misinformation with a far-right editorial bias.
