Notes: TriggerReset or TR is pro-gun blog that covers second amendment issues, self-defense, firearms, politics and news. On their about page they describe themselves as “TriggerReset (TR) is a web-based magazine that includes information deemed relevant to an average couple, living in the Southern United States”. The website does not disclose ownership or editors.
TriggerReset publishes quotes from factually mixed sources such as the Daily Wire, FaithWire and extreme right wing hate groups such as Jihad Watch: “Germany: Women Offered Pants With “Rape Alarms”…A really good “rape alarm” is the report of a .357 or 9mm round. But it’s Europe, and they’re not allowed to fight back at all…”
In review, TriggerReset typically uses quotes from poor sources and reports news from an extreme right wing perspective, utilizing emotionally loaded words both in their headlines and articles respectively: “Why Are College Kids So Ignorant? Because They’re Indoctrinated by Stupid Leftists…I’m attending college, so I know” and “North Korea Jails, Tortures, and Kills…Christians…In North Korea followers of JESUS are dealt with the same as the democrats think we should be dealt with here…” Story selection has a common theme of being anti-Islam, anti-Left and pro-Christian.
Overall, we rate TriggerReset Questionable based on extreme right wing bias, promotion of propaganda and use of sources that are classified as hate groups. (M. Huitsing 5/7/2018)
