Analysis / Bias

The Daily Wire presents news with a hyper-partisan conservative bias in reporting and wording. For example, headlines are usually sensational and utilize strong emotional language such as this: Democrats Boo God. Then They Quote The Bible To Attack Trump. Virtually every story favors the right and denigrates the left. However, the Daily Wire does not always report favorably on President Trump and his policies. When it comes to science, they often do not align with climate scientists’ consensus that humans are a significant factor in climate change. See the fact checks below.
