Analysis / Bias

In review, the Young Conservatives Facebook page serves as a vehicle to publish conservative memes and news articles from the Young Conservatives website hosted by the Chicks on the Right. The Young Conservatives website always publishes stories that favor the right and denigrate the left. Headlines are often sensationalized and emotional such as this: BOMBSHELL: Bill Taylor Testifies, Zelensky Told Me ‘Call Was Fine, I Was Happy with the Call’. This story does not list an author and links back to the Questionable Breitbart News. Editorially, they have a very favorable opinion of President Trump by frequently reporting negatively on his opposition such as this: Chuck Schumer Mocks Trump In Tweet, Backfires Big Time. This story is sourced exclusively to tweets. The YC also holds anti-immigration viewpoints such as this: ‘Invasion’: Record Number Of Migrants Arrested At Southern Border 3 Months IN A ROW. In general, story selection 100% favors the right and sometimes utilizes poor sources.

A factual search reveals a couple of failed fact checks.

Overall, we rate Young Conservatives far Right Biased based on story selection and editorial positions that always favor the conservative right. We also rate them Mixed for factual reporting due to the use of poor sources and a few failed fact checks. (8/26/2016) Updated (D. Van Zandt 11/13/2019)
