Analysis / Bias
The Real America’s Voice website streams their live programming, consisting of conservative news reporting and news talk shows. Feature shows include Steve Bannon’s War Room Pandemic, which publishes misleading information regarding the Coronavirus. In fact, Bannon was banned from Twitter and Youtube after claiming he would like to see Dr. Anthony Fauci’s head on a pike. Apparently, this type of language is acceptable at Real America’s Voice.
Another featured show is Just the News AM, which provides news coverage from the right biased and factually mixed Just the News. Finally, they also feature a show called Securing America by Frank Gaffney. Mr. Gaffney is an anti-immigration advocate who is considered a purveyor of hate based on Islamophobia. The website features numerous other right-wing hosts, but these are the most known names.
Real America’s Voice republishes news from two primary sources, Just the News and Voice of America. While Voice of America is considered a low-biased source, Just the News is strongly right biased and promotes misinformation and conspiracy theories. In general, RAV holds a strong right conservative editorial bias and does not always report factually based on numerous failed fact checks by their hosts.
Failed Fact Checks
- Officials look for a box with 10 more batches after they thought they were done rescanning – Missing Context
- COVID DEATH TOTALS OFF BY NEARLY 25% CONFUSION OVER DYING WITH OR FROM COVID – False
