Some sources in this category may be untrustworthy. See all Left Bias sources.

Analysis / Bias

In review, The Zero Hour website does not publish text-based news but rather links to the radio and TV program. On sources that do not provide text-based content, we provide a short summary of bias findings and failed fact checks. The website provides video clips that always favor the left with titles that contain loaded emotional language such as this Laura Packard on Judge Barrett and the Lives on the Line. Editorially all content supports the progressive left.
