Founded in 2017, Red State Nation is a conservative news and opinion website based in the United States. According to their about page, “Red State Nation was conceived and launched in the U.S.A. by red-blooded American Patriots who love God, family, and liberty.”
Funded by / Ownership
Red State Nation Media owns the website, but it is unclear who owns or runs the company. Advertising generates revenue.
Analysis / Bias
Red State Nation does not produce original reporting but rather summarizes and adds conservative commentary to news from other sources. Articles and headlines often contain emotional language, such as this Censored Video: After Calling Half Of The Country “Fascists” One Brave American Calls Biden A Pedo During His Last Rally.
Regarding sourcing, most articles do not contain hyperlinked sourcing, instead linking to social media and videos.
Editorially, all stories favor the right and denigrate the left, such as this Video: Saudi Energy Minister Destroys MSM Fake News Reporter At OPEC+ Press Conference. Regarding science, throughout Covid-19, the website advanced vaccine hesitancy with articles such as this Video: Fauci Admits To Mark Zuckerberg That COVID-19 Vaccines Could Be Making People Worse and More Likely to Be Infected by SARS-CoV-2. This is false, as he did not say that. Finally, they also promoted election fraud disinformation such as this After The Allegations That 42,000 People Voted Twice In Nevada, Judge Ruled That Trump Team Should Inspect The Voting Machines – They Were Instead Given A Tour Of The Facility. This was rated false. In general, Red State Nation is strongly right-biased and not always factual in reporting.
Failed Fact Checks
- In September 2020, CBS Evening News dishonestly presented a group of “Latinos for Trump” as Biden supporters. – False
- “132,000 ballots in Fulton County, Ga., have been identified as likely ineligible,” and President Trump might win Georgia as a result. – False
Overall, we rate Red State Nation right biased and Questionable based on a lack of transparency, the use of poor sources, the promotion of conspiracy theories and pseudoscience, false claims, propaganda, and failed fact checks. (D. Van Zandt 10/29/2022)
