The USA Conservative
Reasoning: Extreme Right, Propaganda, Conspiracy, Fake News
Notes: The USA Conservative is an extreme right wing news and opinion blog. Most articles are highly sensationalized with strong use of loaded words to convey positive emotion for conservatives and negative for liberals. They also publish outright fake news such as the story of Trey Gowdy’s son missing. This fake story originates from the satire website The Last Line of Defense, however many conservative websites republish their stories thinking they are real. The USA Conservative is also on Politifact’s fake news list and Factcheck.org’s. (6/18/2017) Updated (D. Van Zandt 7/7/2017)
