Analysis / Bias

In review, The Federalist Papers Project offers two types of content. First, is republished content from the right leaning and factually mixed Daily Caller and the other is original opinion pieces that utilize strongly loaded language in favor of the right. Here are some examples: This Is The List of Every Current National Emergency And It Is A Nightmare For Dems and Jim Acosta Insults Angel Moms Then Gets Owned By One. In both of these examples there is zero sourcing of any kind to support their claims. In general, every story on the Federalist Papers Project favors the right and denigrate the left. The FPP also promotes right wing conspiracies such as the Clinton’s being responsible for numerous deaths and promotion of deep state conspiracies.

A factual search reveals a few failed fact checks by IFCN fact checkers.
