These media sources are moderately to strongly biased toward conservative causes through story selection and/or political affiliation. They may utilize strong loaded words (wording that attempts to influence an audience by using appeal to emotion or stereotypes), publish misleading reports and omit reporting of information that may damage conservative causes. Some sources in this category may be untrustworthy. See all Right Bias sources.
Factual Reporting: MIXED
Notes: The Conservative Nut or TCN is a conservative news site based in Tampa, Florida. Tristan Yang is the co-founder and chief executive officer. According to their about page from Director of TCN Ambassadors Ethan Gemmill, their goal is: “Here at The Conservative Nut, we are driven by a single goal; to do our part in making America a better place for all. Our Ambassadors Program strives to build stronger and informed citizens and make a positive impact with all of our pursuits.”
A search of Whois reveals that the website is registered to the Florida Teenage Republicans and was created on 6/23/2017. The Conservative Nut also endorses candidates and posts their pictures with them. Some of the notable candidates they endorse are Ted Cruz, Dr. Ben Carson, Carly Fiorina and Thom Tillis. The website also claims to be partners with several organizations such as The American Enterprise Institute and The Center for Free Enterprise. The American Enterprise Institute has a Mixed factual rating by our criteria due to publishing information that is opposed to the consensus of science.
In review, The Conservative Nut uses minimally emotional wording in their headlines. The majority of stories and information favor the right, but unfortunately completely lack linked sourcing. While the articles published are generally well written and may very well be accurate, without hyperlinks or a source listing we cannot verify the information. Overall, we rate The Conservative Nut Right Biased based on story selection that favors the right, and endorsements of strictly Republican candidates. Further, we rate them Mixed for factual reporting based on partnering with an organization that does not accept the consensus of science and also lack of sourcing to credible information. (M.
