Analysis / Bias
In review, US Backlash publishes extreme right biased news and commentary in favor of the Trump administration. Headlines and wording often are extremely emotional and frequently utilize profanity such as this: Dumb-Ass Susan Rice Thinks President Trump Should Notify DNC Losers Everytime Trump Does Shit Obama Couldn’t. This article, like the rest, does not provide hyperlinked sourcing, but rather quotes a news story and interjects far-right opinions.
US Backlash’s sole purpose is to promote President Donald Trump through aggressive propaganda. For example, although they routinely denigrate liberals as criminals and pedophiles, they also attack conservatives who they deem not loyal to Trump such as this: ALABAMA – PLEASE REJECT NUTLESS JEFF SESSIONS & ELECT A CONSERVATIVE WHO HAS SOME BALLS – THANK YOU! and this, Increasingly leftist Fox News Pussies Refuse to Speak Name of Alleged Hoaxblower Eric Ciaramella.
In general, US Backlash is a pro-Trump propaganda website that poorly sources information and uses extremely emotional wording to sway their audience.
Overall, we rate US Backlash Questionable based on extreme right bias, promotion of pro-Trump propaganda, poor souring, and a complete lack of transparency. (D. Van Zandt 11/10/2019)
