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.
- Overall, we rate Politichicks borderline extreme right biased based on wording and story selection that favors the right. We also rate them Mixed factually based on the use of poor sources, some of which are questionable and a lack of transparency.
Factual Reporting: MIXED
World Press Freedom Rank: USA 45/180
Founded in 2009, Politichicks is a very conservative right-wing web tv show and website. The Politichicks are Ann-Marie Murrell and Morgan Brittany. According to their about page “PolitiChicks.com understands that freedom and liberty must be maintained and protected with vigilance and with the constant support of the American people. Without that vigilance, tyranny moves in. We refuse to allow that to happen on our watch.”
Funded by / Ownership
The Politichicks website lacks transparency as they do not clearly disclose ownership, however it is assumed Ann-Marie Murrell and Morgan Brittany are co-owners. Revenue is derived through advertising and sponsored content.
Analysis / Bias
In review, the website publishes information that is both original and summarizes existing news stories. Headlines and articles vary from low biased to emotional such as this Insanity Is Alive And Catching. Outside of a cartoon, this story completely lacks sourcing to verifiable sources. They also report opinion content that is completely without sourced information to support the claims of the headline Very Possible: A Landslide Election For Donald Trump. While this argument is possible it lacks any premise to support it., which is a fallacy in philosophical and critical thinking or a very poor biased argument.
Failed Fact Checks
- None to date
Overall, we rate Politichicks borderline questionable and extreme right biased based on wording and story selection that favors the right. We also rate them Mixed factually based on the use of poor sources, some of which are questionable and a lack of transparency. (10/21/2016) Updated (D. Van Zandt 9/05/2020)
