Funded by / Ownership
Real News Now does not reveal ownership. Advertising generates revenue.
Analysis / Bias
Real News Now primarily publishes conservative news articles from the Real News Now Podcast. It is not clear who is behind the podcast.
Articles and headlines contain emotional wording, such as DONALD TRUMP SLAMS INDICTMENT CORRUPTION IN STATEMENT and denigrate the left FORMER WH DOCTORS SAYS ‘BIDEN’S MENTAL HEALTH IS IN TOTAL DECLINE.’ The last article is linked to a tweet from former White House Dr. Ronny Jackson, who has made false claims.
Editorially, all stories reviewed favor the right and sometimes promote false information, such as this sourced from the questionable Gateway Pundit INVENTOR OF EMAIL SAYS 17,000 DUPLICATE BALLOTS FOUND IN ARIZONA. This story was labeled Pants on Fire by Politifact. Real News Now generally holds a far-right bias, sometimes publishes conspiracy theories, and makes false claims, as evidenced above.
Failed Fact Checks
- Real News Now has not been directly fact-checked by a third party; however, the sources they rely on have failed numerous fact-checks.
Overall, we rate Real News Now as far-right biased and Questionable based on the promotion of propaganda and conspiracy theories, the use of poor sources, and a complete lack of transparency. (D. Van Zandt 04/01/2023)
