Analysis / Bias

Teaparty.org presents news with extreme right-wing bias through the use of loaded words and sensational headlines such as this Biden Regime Shuts Down Trump Administration’s Investigation Into The Origins Of The China Coronavirus. This original story is poorly sourced to mixed factual sources such as The Daily Caller and CNN and Questionable sources like the Gateway Pundit, which routinely fails fact checks. Other stories on the website are published by disreputable sources that routinely fail fact checks, such as Infowars, Newswars, and WND.

Editorially, they no longer support the original Tea Party, which represented low taxes, low regulations, and a free-market economy. Now the Tea Party endorses former President Trump with sections dedicated to Pray for Trump, the Stop the Steal conspiracy, and Team Trump. Essentially, this is a cult-like source that promotes Trump without evidence. For example, during the 2020 election, they routinely published election fraud falsehoods such as this Bombshell: Arizona Election Results Audit Finds ‘Significant Discrepancies,’ Ballots Off By Up To 17.5%, Joe Biden ‘Likely Did Not Win’.

Finally, during the pandemic, they routinely published false or misleading information regarding Covid-19, such as this Biden Regime Shuts Down Trump Administration’s Investigation Into The Origins Of The China Coronavirus. This is the 100% opposite of what is happening Covid: Biden orders investigation into virus origin as lab leak theory debated. In general, this source frequently promotes misinformation in an attempt to promote Trump.
