Analysis / Bias
In review, The Liberty Eagle is an extreme right-wing biased, conspiracy news blog that frequently utilizes strong emotional wording that always favors the right such as this: STEVE SCALISE TOTALLY SHUTS DOWN WHOOPI ON GUN CONTROL. The Liberty Eagle, many times does not source their content and sometimes they source from questionable sources such as the Gateway Pundit and Mark Levin. In general, all stories favor the right and denigrate the left. They also routinely publish right-wing conspiracy theories that come from discredited sources such as NewsPunch (yournewswire).
A factual search reveals that The Liberty Eagle has failed fact checks by IFCN fact-checkers.
Overall, we rate The Liberty Eagle Questionable based on extreme right-wing bias, poor sourcing, and promotion of propaganda. (D. Van Zandt 12/17/2017) Updated (12/10/2018)
