Analysis / Bias
Save Jersey bills itself as New Jersey’s #1 Source of Conservative News, Commentary, Humor & Analysis.
In review, Save Jersey is a conservative blog that publishes New Jersey political news with a right-wing bias in story selection. There is the moderate use of loaded words such as this: Menendez lashes out at Trump’s ‘anemic’ North Korean summit result. Most information is properly sourced to local NJ media or directly from politicians. A factual search reveals they have never failed a fact check.
