Analysis / Bias
In review, Middle American Democrat reports news with a consistent left-wing bias and frequently uses loaded language such as this: Trump lies to military again about their pay. This story is reasonably sourced to the HuffPost and Politifact. The primary target for this website is President Donald Trump, with some articles making claims that are not supported by evidence. For example, in this article, Donald Trump is mentally ill – If you don’t already believe that, just read these quotes, they use quotes from Donald Trump to establish his mental illness, which is not evidence. In general, story selection always favors the left and reports negatively on the right.
A factual search reveals they have published false information on their Facebook page.
