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.

Swarajya articles are subscription based allowing 7 articles free per week. Swarajya covers various topics including social, political, economic and cultural life of India. As well as world news, infrastructure, sports, defense, politics, podcasts, culture and more.
In review, Swarajya publishes stories with loaded headlines such as “For A Second Term Please Do The Right Things, Mr Prime Minister!” Typically they utilize sources such as The Hindu and credible sources such as Reuters, but most of the time they source through the use quotes and rarely provide links. For USA news coverage, their news is mostly balanced with neutral headlines and utilize sources such as Reuters. A factual search shows they have not failed any fact checks. Overall, story selection tends to slightly favor the right, therefore we rate Swarajya Right-Center biased and High for factual reporting. (M. Huitsing 2/27/2018)
