Analysis / Bias
In review, Represent.Us publishes a combination of original writing as well as curated news stories to external sources. Their Live Blog features original content geared toward anti-corruption measures in elections. Editorially, Represent.us is mostly opposed to President Trump’s platform as they want to end Citizens United and stop corporations from having more power than the worker. For example, they want to end Citizen’s United, which gives corporations an equals voice to living human citizens. From a political standpoint, they favor progressive left candidates over establishment candidates: THE 2020 PRESIDENTIAL ANTI‑CORRUPTION SCORECARD. In general, Represent.us is factual with a left-leaning bias politically.
