Analysis / Bias

In review, News Blaze has an extreme right-wing bias in reporting, such as: “George Soros The Terrorist Financier”. Most of their political news favors the right and is anti-left. They also frequently use emotion invoking rhetoric in their headlines and articles. Sometimes they refer to Questionable propaganda sources such as RT and other times they don’t source at all and promote conspiracies, such as this: “As The Deep State Unravels.” Article headlines are frequently emotional such as this Renewable Energy Risks Destroying The Environment and Economy. This story is sourced to organizations that deny or minimize human-influenced climate change such as the Heartland Institute and Watts Up with That. Another story with over the top denigrating wording and a complete lack of sourcing is this Colin Powell Endorsed Sleepy Creepy Joe Biden Over Trump. Finally, they also publish misleading or false news regarding Covid-19 such as this COVID-19 No Vaccine Needed, There Is Already A Cure. There currently is not a cure for Covid-19.
