Analysis / Bias
In review, The DC Chronicle primarily republishes news from the Associated Press, Reuters and the strongly right leaning Daily Caller. Although they republish from credible low biased sources such as the Associated Press, they deceptively change the headline to reflect an emotional right wing bias such as this: A Make America Great Again Bomb Has Just Been Dropped On The House. Here is another example of a headline that does not match the tone of an AP story: Trump Just Humiliated This Democrat In The Most Epic Way Possible. Further, Michael Moates shares the articles he writes for other sources. Some of these sources are on our conspiracy or questionable list.
Editorially, the website does not clearly distinguish between news reporting and opinion pieces, however all opinions expressed on this website are strongly right biased and heavily in favor of President Donald Trump and his policy.
Although a factual search reveals that the DC Chronicle has not failed a fact check, Michael Moates has failed a fact check.
Overall, we rate the DC Chronicle strongly Right Biased based on emotional wording and the right leaning editorial positions of the writers. We also rate them Mixed for factual reporting due to the use of deceptive clickbait headlines that then leads to credible information. Further, Michael Moates has failed a fact check and writes for some questionable sources.
