Personal Opinion

Cam's picture

The links located in the writing do not seem to be very helpful. They are placed in strange spots, not really supporting anything. I also agree that the click-bait adds to the untrustworthy. The picture isn't the best quality, however it is passable. This site is also pushing for you to share this article on facebook and twitter, and I find that untrustworthy. Overall I do not trust this site, however I could be convinced otherwise. Also, to quote the first sentence in their about us "Townhall.com is the #1 conservative website." Do you think this quote adds or takes away from their reliability?

I would say that saying that

I would say that saying that a website is "the #1 conservative website" takes away from their reliability. When you think about it it doesn't mean anything. They aren't saying they are the most popular, so for me, it sorta puts me off.

Response to article

I agree that this source is not very trustworthy. While it has certain links verify facts, it also draws many other harsh and unsupported conclusions. The part about democrats, "foaming at the mouths" and, knowing that deep down the republicans are right about issues is far fetched, without evidence, and absurd. The writer is unskilled, and is essentially ranting about how wrong democrats are about political issues. Yes his specific facts are accurate. For example his statement about voter fraud being greater than zero is true, but when he stretches this information to make democrats seem hypocritical and irrational, it makes me distrust the site. Also I distrust this article because I have never even heard of the townhall.com

I agree that this article seems to be untrustworthy. It very clearly has an agenda to push, and does not seem to be bringing up both sides of the argument in a way that allows the reader to think about the whole issue. That, and the large amount of adds and other ways this website is clearly trying to make money does not instill confidence in me that it is proper news.

Doesn't seem that trustworthy

Oscar's picture

The article/site is obviously biased against Democrats, so it already makes me not trust it that much. Obviously it will only use facts that support their agenda and ignore everything else that doesn't. So it's not a good site to get facts from because they will ignore the big picture. Plus, it's not written very professionally, for example it uses phrases such as, "Democrats, in response, are foaming at their mouths, although one wonders if they have any foam left. How odd." Phrases such as this show how unprofessional the article is written and shows their condescending attitude towards Democrats. I would rather look for another source that at least pretends to be unbiased.....

I agree, does not seem trustworthy

Barnabas's picture

The fact that it gives off a very liberal/bias point of view straight from the start does not make me think it is a credible source to rely on. Also them saying that they are a conservative website in it itself is not a credible source to rely on for information of wanting to learn both sides. So my conclusion is yes I agree that this article is not a credible source.
