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.
Factual Reporting: MIXED
The website does not have an about page, however their Facebook profile states Populist Wire is the “#1 Online Source For Populist News. Pro-Liberty, Anti-Bigotry. Not Democrat or Republican. Goals: Media, Hollywood, Political, Tech watchdog. We will not let the corrupt corporate media control the narrative by lies of omission or by blatant lies.” It further states they were founded in 2017.
Funded by / Ownership
Again, the website does not have an about page to disclose ownership and the domain is registered privately. Populist Wire is funded through online advertising, donations and a store that sells merchandise with their branding.
Analysis / Bias
The Populist Wire is a news and opinion website/blog that publishes stories with strong emotional wording such as this: [Video] Jim Ascosta of CNN accosts the President of the United States again. In general stories tend to favor the right through story selection and wording. Populist Wire always sources their information, however they sometimes use poor sources such as conspiracy theorist Alex Jones.
Overall, we rate Populist Wire Right Biased based on story selection and Mixed for factual reporting due to the use of poor sources. (D. Van Zandt 7/21/2018)
