Analysis / Bias

In review, BlackSphere publishes original articles by Jackson that are supportive of former President Trump and denigrates liberals. Many articles link to his radio show. Most articles and headlines feature highly loaded emotional wording that favors the right, such as this White House’s SCATHING Rebuke of NY Gov Cuomo. This story is sourced from tweets and the New York Daily News.

Another example of denigration of the left is this story Democrats PANIC: Leftist Icons Call Latest Strategy Pure Madness. This story is again sourced from social media and the non-credible Washington Times. Further, the story features an unflattering photo of Nancy Pelosi, which is typical of this website. Finally, throughout the Covid-19 pandemic of 2020-2023, this source has routinely published misleading information, and during the election of 2020, they have also published misinformation (see fact checks below).  In general, all stories favor the far-right and Donald Trump while denigrating liberals.
