Sputnik - Right Center BiasRIGHT-CENTER BIAS

These media sources are slightly to moderately conservative in bias. They often publish factual information that utilizes loaded words (wording that attempts to influence an audience by using appeal to emotion or stereotypes) to favor conservative causes. These sources are generally trustworthy for information, but may require further investigation. See all Right-Center sources.

Factual Reporting: MIXED

Notes: Sputnik News is a Russian news media company out of Moscow that has a right-center bias in reporting USA News.  Sputnik is also extremely pro-Russian Government and has been accused of being a propaganda arm for Vladimir Putin.  They have also been labeled by Politifact as publishing misleading or false stories.  Overall, this is a borderline questionable source; however most times they report real news that is mostly factual. Sputnik is a pro-Russian website that needs fact checking. (7/31/2016) Updated (8/4/2017)
