Analysis / Bias
In review, Conservative Buzz does not produce original content. Rather, they republish or summarize articles from other sources and place them in categories such as: Latest News, Elections, Big Government and Liberal Lunacy. Headlines are not overly sensational and generally reflect the story such as this: U.S. Receives Wave Of Bomb Threats. However, this story, like most on the website do not provide hyperlinked sourcing, but rather mention the source where it came from. Some of the sources used are the Questionable Breitbart and credible Politico. In general, story selection always favors the right.
Overall, we rate Conservative Buzz Questionable based on use of poor sources that have failed fact checks and a complete lack of transparency. (D. Van Zandt 4/12/2019)
