Analysis / Bias
In review, Think Americana is far-right website that glorifies President Trump and denigrates liberals through loaded language such as this: ALEXANDRIA OCASIO-CORTEZ PRETENDS TO BE FROM THE BRONX, HERE’S PROOF SHE WENT TO AFFLUENT YORKTOWN. This story relies on the Questionable Gateway Pundit for information. The website breaks news into categories such as Hillary which is links to stories that denigrate Hillary Clinton and liberals in general. They also have a category for Trump that glorifies his policies and actions. Think Americana also has a Blogroll that presumably lists their 4 favorite sources which are the Questionable Gateway Pundit, the factually Mixed Daily Caller, The Last Tradition and Trump Truck. In general, all stories favor the right and some use very poor sources.
A factual search reveals that Think Americana has failed a fact check.
