Analysis / Bias

In review, Prntly does not produce original stories, but rather summarizes and links to external information. Headlines are biased such as this: Police Departments Refusing To Police Democrat National Convention. This headline is not true. This website also heavily reports favorably for Trump with articles such as these Arrest Made In Violent Assault of 82 Year Old Man For His Trump Hat and this Black Trump Supporter MURDERED In Broad Daylight By Gunfire. The common theme is to portray African Americans and other minorities as the source of crime.
