Analysis / Bias
Political Animal News does not publish original news stories but rather interjects right-wing biased opinions around news stories. All stories favor the right and often harshly denigrate the left, such as this: Joe Biden just lashed out at Donald Trump with a jaw-dropping insult—and immediately regretted it after this response. This story does not use hyperlinked sourcing on the information they are referencing.
Editorially, all stories strongly favor the right such as this Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez once again proved she’s out of touch with reality with one tweet, and Christians cheered when this Republican Congressman just sent a Planned Parenthood official to his room without dessert. In general, many stories on this website advance right-wing conspiracy theories and propaganda, sometimes using poor sources such as Breitbart.
