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 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.
