Sean Hannity Bias Rating

RIGHT BIAS

These media sources are moderate 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.


Bias

  • Political Views: Frequently reports negatively on liberals, often promoting conspiracies.
  • Scientific Views: Denies climate change, frequently downplays covid-19 and is skeptical about vaccines.
  • Social Views: Sean Hannity is against same-sex marriage calls AIDS a ‘gay disease’.

Failed Fact Checks


Summary

  • Overall, we rate Sean Hannity Far-Right Biased based on editorial positions that strongly favor the Right. We also rate him low for factual reporting due to rejecting the consensus of science on some issues as well as numerous failed fact checks.
