Analysis / Bias

The Right Scoop reports news with a right-wing bias in story selection and loaded wording that favors the right: Sarah Sanders releases blistering statement on Omarosa. Rather than sourcing this story, they offer a block quote and opine about the statement. This is the norm for most stories on The Right Scoop; take a snippet of a news article and editorialize it with a right-leaning bias.

Editorially, all stories favor a conservative right perspective and frequently denigrate the left, such as this The left is using a new woke term, and it will make you roll your eyes HARD. Further, throughout 2020-2021 they published misinformation regarding Covid-19 and Election Fraud. For example, they claimed that Joe Biden was the only person to wear a mask at the climate summit in April 2021. According to Politifact and other fact-checkers, this is not true. Finally, they also frequently repeated the false election fraud claims of former President Trump and “My Pillow Guy” Mike Lindell. In general, The Right Scoop is far-right biased and frequently publishes false and misleading information.
