Analysis / Bias
In review, Press Corp claims to conduct investigative reporting; however, we could not easily find this. Perhaps they did long ago, but they simply republish summaries of news from other sources. These sources are always from the right and most often factually mixed or worse. For example, they republish articles from the factually mixed Daily Wire, Daily Caller, and The Blaze and articles from Questionable sources such as Breitbart and Epoch Times.
As of this review, they are republishing election fraud conspiracies such as this SHARPIES WERE MADE AVAILABLE THROUGHOUT ARIZONA’S LARGEST COUNTY OFFICIALS SAY. This story has been cited as misinformation because Sharpies are allowed to be used to fill out ballots in Arizona. In general, Press Corp republishes news articles from unreliable sources.
