Reasoning: Extreme Right, Plagiarism, Poor Sources, Lack of Transparency
Founded in 2019, USA is Online is a hyper-partisan news and opinion blog. There is zero transparency as they do not have an about page, list a location, and do not list authors or name owners.
Funded by / Ownership
USA is Online claims to be copyrighted to The Daily Post, Inc., which seems impossible. Revenue is derived through advertising.
Analysis / Bias
In review, USA is Online publishes news and opinions with a far right bias and frequently uses loaded emotional wording such as this: Team Trump Turns Tables On Dems, Accuses Them Of ‘Massive’ Crime. Many stories are directly copy and pasted from others sources without citation (plagiarized) such as this from The Federalist: BREAKING, Leaked Documents Show Tens Of Millions From Ukraine Paid To Kerry, Biden Jr Fund, Report. In general, all stories on the website favor the right and in particular President Donald Trump.
Overall, we rate USA is Online Questionable based on extreme right wing bias, plagiarism, use of poor sources who routinely fail fact checks and a complete lack of transparency. (D. Van Zandt 4/4/2020)
