Analysis / Bias
In review, Young America’s Foundation publishes articles that almost always favor the right. There is the moderate use of loaded language such as this: Cornell Leftists Predictably Lose Touch With Reality Ahead of YAF Lecture by VP Dick Cheney. YAF usually sources its information from credible sources. However, we found instances of them publishing false information to advance an anti-abortion position. See failed fact checks.
Failed Fact Checks
