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: Nancy Pelosi Just Gave Up Her Plan If Dems Take The House – It’s Bad. 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.
A factual search reveals a very poor track record with IFCN fact-checkers. Here are a few:
- Website touts misleading headline about Obama plotting White House takeover – MOSTLY FALSE
- Clinton Cancels Rally Due to ‘Lock Her Up’ Chants – FALSE
- Oregon State Leaves Donald Trump off Ballots – FICTION
- WikiLeaks Exposes Clinton Assassination of Antonin Scalia? – FALSE
Overall, we rate Red State Watcher Questionable due to extreme right-wing bias, promotion of propaganda, poor sourcing, numerous failed fact checks and a complete lack of Transparency. (10/30/2016) Updated (D. Van Zandt 8/12/2018)
