RIGHT BIAS

These media sources are moderate to strongly biased toward conservative causes through story selection and/or political affiliation. They may utilize strong loaded words (wording that attempts to influence an audience by using appeal to emotion or stereotypes), publish misleading reports, and omit information reporting that may damage conservative causes. Some sources in this category may be untrustworthy. See all Right Bias sources.

  • Overall, Sonoran News demonstrates right-leaning bias in reporting through publishing articles that almost always favor the right. We also rate them Mostly factual rather than High due to poor sourcing techniques and lack of transparency with ownership.

Analysis / Bias

Sonoran News is conservative editorially as their tagline is: “The Conservative Voice of Arizona.”

Under the Opinion section, there are “My View, Letters, and Guest editorials subsections.” This example is from a guest editor, in which the headline and the article utilizes loaded words but does not provide any sourcing to support the information presented. Under the My View section, another article doesn’t give a source and then republishes from Fox News with no other references provided.
