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.
Factual Reporting: HIGH
Notes: Young America’s Foundation (YAF) is a conservative youth organization, founded in 1969, whose mission is to ensure that “increasing numbers of young Americans understand and are inspired by the ideas of individual freedom, a strong national defense, free enterprise, and traditional values.” Young America’s Foundation is funded through donations with full disclosure on the website. Some notable donors are Pat Sajak, the Koch Bothers and Amway.
In review, the Young America’s Foundation publishes articles that almost always favor the right. There is 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 their information to credible High factual sources. A factual search reveals they have not failed a fact check.
Overall, we rate Young America’s Foundation Right Biased based on story selection that favors the right and High for factual reporting based on a clean fact check record and use of credible sources. (D. Van Zandt 5/20/2018)
