Analysis / Bias
Red State Watcher is a conservative news website that has a strong right-wing bias in reporting choices. They frequently use loaded emotional wording in there headlines and articles: ‘Marxist Lesbian’ American Library Association head says conservative book bans are ‘attacks on children’. When it comes to sourcing they usually rely on tweets and sometimes questionable sources such as Breitbart. Red State Watcher frequently promotes pro-Trump propaganda.
Editorially, all stories favor a conservative perspective like this Virginia parents appeal to remove a so-called anti-racist policy from school district: ‘Racist at its core’. In general, Red State Watcher holds far-right biases and is not always factual.
