Analysis / Bias
In review, Sons of 1776 report news from a pro-Trump and conservative bias. Headlines often use loaded emotional language such as this State Lawmakers Ignore Constitution, Pass Extreme Gun Control Bill Targeting Law Biding Citizens. This story is poorly sourced to the Daily Caller. They also source to Breitbart, which is a far-right conspiracy and questionable news source. In general, this source does not produce original content and the content they do produce is questionable at best.
