Reasoning: Extreme Right, Poor Sourcing, Lack of Transparency
Launched in 2020, The Conservative Central is a hyperpartisan conservative blog that was originally a part of the Amino App (a mobile app that publishes blogs and social content). According to their about page, The Conservative Central is “a blog dedicated to advancing the principals of limited government, free trade, personal responsibility, liberty, and preserving the greatest American traditions in these modern times.”
The website lacks transparency as they do not name an owner, editor, or indicate their location.
Funded by / Ownership
The Conservative Central does not disclose ownership, however, according to Twitter and the publisher of articles, the owner is possibly Jose Andres. There does not appear to be a revenue stream at this time.
Analysis / Bias
In review, The Conservative Central publishes news and opinion stories by Jose Andres. Usually, these stories present with extremely loaded emotional language such as The Violent Left. This story is sourced to a Youtube video. In another story, they use a sensationalized headline that denigrates Black Lives Matter BLM Thugs Attack Jewish Supporters – A Few Questions. For the most part, original content links to a video with minimal text and promotes extreme right viewpoints.
The website also features news feeds from a variety of right-leaning sources such as Reason, The Daily Caller, Breitbart (Questionable), and Townhall (Questionable). In general, The Conservative Central publishes content that strongly favors the right and uses sources that have failed numerous fact checks.
