Analysis / Bias

In review, State of the Nation does not write original content, but rather links to other news sources, videos, social media, etc. They also republish news from other sources. Story selection comes from a far-right perspective with many stories promoting conspiracy theories such as this Here’s the Raw Truth about the Covid-19 Vaccine. (Video). This is a video that features Anti-vaccination Dr. Simone Gold, who has made numerous false claims regarding the Coronavirus. She was also arrested for taking part in the Capitol riots on January 6th. When it comes to sourcing they frequently use far-right questionable sources such as Breitbart, Zero Hedge, and the Gateway Pundit

Editorially, all stories favor the right and particular former President Trump such as this Palm Beach County Harassing Trump, Chasing Him Out of Mar-a-Lago. In general, SOTN is not a credible source of information as they routinely promote far-right conspiracies, propaganda, and pseudoscience.
