Thanks, @Centristsin2010 , for posting all the information relating THE DAILY CALLER.

 

I usually do the same as @jimc91 seems to use this fringe media outlet as a valid resource.....NOT.

 

One bit of trivia your expose' left out.

 

Its original funder, FOSTER FRIESS, publicly stated that:

 

"WOMEN SHOULD PRACTICE CONTRACEPTION BY SQUEEZING AN ASPIRIN BETWEEN THEIR KNEES"

 

That gives you some kind of idea of the corporate culture at THE DAILY CALLER.

My pleasure, Nancy.  Facts matter to most Americans, while some prefer today's MAD Magazines from the Right..

Why do we seem to have the standard, "Well, they did it too theme" here? Why don't Cons EVER criticize there own, but only whine when the Dems do something they dislike.  Is it hypocrisy?  Cognitive dissonance or both?

 

I hope progress can ever be made to think beyond that. It well when Cons can criticize their own like Dems did with John Edwards and Al Franken.  Will that ever occur?  Why the political bigotry?

Looks like one got their fill of politically bigoted "news" this morning....

 

Daily Caller
 
 
Daily Caller - Right BiasRIGHT BIAS

 

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.

 

  • Overall, we rate the Daily Caller strongly right biased based on story selection that almost always favors the right and Mixed for factual reporting due to numerous failed fact checks. The Daily Caller is a source that needs to be fact checked on a per article basis.

  Detailed Report

 

Factual Reporting: MIXED
Country: USA
World Press Freedom Rank: USA 45/180

 

History

 

Founded in 2010, the Daily Caller is an American news and opinion website based in Washington, D.C.. It was founded by Tucker Carlson, a libertarian conservative political pundit, and Neil Patel, former adviser to former Vice President Dick Cheney. The current editor-in-chief is Geoff Ingersol.

 

Funded by / Ownership

 

The Daily Caller is owned by The Daily Caller, Inc., which does not list its ownership or members. The website was initially launched after raising $3 million in funding from businessman Foster Friess. Currently, the Daily Caller is funded through native online advertising, averaging 30 million+ page views per month.

 

Analysis / Bias

 

In review, The Daily Caller is a strongly right leaning news and opinion website that has been involved with publishing controversial and false stories. For example, they routinely publish misleading or false information regarding climate change that goes against the consensus of science. The Daily Caller has also published articles by Jason Kessler, a white supremacist who organized a rally of hundreds of white nationalists in Charlottesville. They subsequently scrubbed those articles after the Charlottesville vehicular homicide incident.

 

The Daily Caller frequently uses loaded emotional language that typically favors the right such as this: DEM NOMINEE FOR FLORIDA GOVERNOR IS PROGRESSIVE MAYOR WITH CORRUPTION INVESTIGATION SWIRLING AROUND ... The Daily Caller usually sources their information to credible media outlets, but sometimes they utilize sources that are factually mixed such as the Daily Wire and Questionable sources such as Judicial Watch. In reviewing story content, virtually all favored the right in story selection and wording, while denigrating the left. The Daily Caller also promotes a favorable view of President Donald Trump through promotion of his policies.

 

A factual search reveals a very poor track record with fact checking. Here is a short list of some failed fact checks:

 

 

The Daily Caller has failed numerous fact checks, however they post a significant amount of articles each day. Based on the volume of articles published, versus failed fact checks, they do not fall into the Questionable category, though they are close.

 

Overall, we rate the Daily Caller strongly right biased based on story selection that almost always favors the right and Mixed for factual reporting due to numerous failed fact checks. The Daily Caller is a source that needs to be fact checked on a per article basis. (7/19/2016) Updated (D. Van Zandt 8/29/2018)

TRILLION DOLLAR SPENDING BILL: NO ONE HAS READ IT

233 Views
Message 29 of 29

The House of Representatives is scheduled to vote on a government appropriations bill Thursday evening and, with a day until the vote, lawmakers still have not received the text of the legislation.

“No one has seen the final wording of a long and complicated bill we will be expected to vote on tomorrow evening,” Republican Maryland Rep. Andy Harris told The Daily Caller News Foundation. “That’s no way to run a legislature.”

 

Republican Study Chairman Mike Johnson also confirmed that “as of lunch on Wednesday, members of the RSC, and to our knowledge, even members of the conference committee, had not seen the text.”

 

“It has been reported that [House Majority Leader Steny] Hoyer has said if the bill is dropped today we will consider it tomorrow. This is reminiscent of the, ‘you must pass it to find out what is in it,’ Obamacare debacle,” Johnson said to TheDCNF. “This bill is expected to be well over 1,000 pages, and we will potentially have less than 24 hours to digest it. This is absurd.”

This is absurd...  Yet it is so typical of Nancy Pelosi, that lets unelected bureaucrats write legislation in such a way that the elected members don't have the time to get their own lawyers to interpret the Bill and then force them to vote not knowing or understanding what's in it.

 

Remember;  "We have to pass the Bill to see what's in the Bill"...
