Analysis / Bias
WFNC – 640 AM – Fayetteville does not publish local news but instead relies on the questionable Newsmax and Daily Wire for national news reporting.
The radio station and website broadcasts a daily lineup of news radio hosts who generally hold conservative perspectives. They also feature nationally syndicated Cumulus hosts like Dan Bongino and Sean Hannity, who have poor fact-check records.
Editorially, the majority of radio hosts hold conservative viewpoints, and they do republish opinionated political content from other sources, such as the questionable Daily Wire, which is a source known to advance conspiracy theories and misinformation. In general, radio shows and syndicated news exhibit a conservative bias and sometimes promote misleading or false claims.

Overall, we rate WFNC – 640 AM – Fayetteville Right Biased based on the political affiliation of conservative radio hosts. We also rate them as Mixed for factual reporting due to poor sourcing and hosting news shows personalities with poor fact-check records. (D. Van Zandt 10/23/2023)
