Analysis / Bias

In review, The Washington Sentinel does not produce original content but rather summarizes news stories and offers right biased opinions. An example is this article Schiff’s ‘Parody’ Conversation During DNI Hearing Prompts Motion to Censure. This story is sourced from the questionable Breitbart, which has failed numerous fact checks. Some other sources used are the factually Mixed Daily Caller as well as Fox News. In general, story selection on the Washington Sentinel always favors the right. It denigrates the left while sometimes using poor sources to validate their claims and the outright publishing of fake news.
