Unity News Network - Right BiasRIGHT BIAS

These media sources are moderately to strongly biased toward conservative causes through story selection and/or political affiliation. They may utilize strong loaded words (wording that attempts to influence an audience by using appeal to emotion or stereotypes), publish misleading reports and omit reporting of information that may damage conservative causes. Some sources in this category may be untrustworthy. See all Right Bias sources.

  • Overall, we rate Unity News Network Right Biased based on story selection and editorial bias that strongly favors the right. We also rate them Mixed for factual reporting due to the use of limited hyperlinked sourcing and the use of misleading, strongly loaded emotional headlines (sensationalized) that are far stronger than the evidence presented in stories.

Analysis / Bias

Unity News Network’s primary mission is to promote nationalism and support for Brexit. Story selection often favors the political right and uses strongly loaded words such as this: SHOCK REPORTS that Nigel Farage has been BANNED from meeting President TRUMP! and this Macron RAGES as he BLAMES British people for DESTROYING hopes of United States of Europe! When it comes to sourcing, they primarily use quotes and occasionally hyperlinks to media sources. Some of the media sources utilized are The Telegraph, Bloomberg News and local papers such as Devon Live.

In general, news almost always favors the right with many articles being anti-immigrant that focuses on their crimes, but not others. The primary theme of this website is Nationalism and British separation from the European Union with many stories that denigrate the left with loaded emotional wording such as this: Nicola Sturgeon now PLOTTING with Corbyn, Soubry, Cable & others to SABOTAGE Brexit!

A factual search reveals that Unity News Network has not failed a fact check by an IFCN fact checker.
