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 Resurgent is a blog run by Erick Woods Erickson who is a politically conservative radio host. He hosts the radio show Atlanta’s Evening News with Erick Erickson, broadcast on 750 WSB (AM). Previously, he served as the editor-in-chief and the CEO of the conservative political blog RedState and was a political contributor for CNN. The Resurgent blog presents news with a right-wing bias in reporting with most stories favoring the right. They also publish a lot of stories from a Christian perspective. The Resurgent typically sources to credible media sources and we could not find evidence of a failed fact check by this blog. However, Erick Erickson has a poor track record with fact-checkers. Overall, we rate The Resurgent right biased and mixed for factual reporting based on the owner’s track record with facts. (D. Van Zandt 9/2/2017)
