Conservapedia is in a unique position to rank other information sources of all types. Please see our nominations below the table, and fill in others as you like.

Rank Information Source Comments
1 WorldNetDaily has reporters at conservative events; moves to number 1 with its candid and courageous reporting about the homosexual agenda and also the proposed Arizona law requiring proof of qualifications by presidential candidates; gives writers good leeway
2 Cybercast News uniquely informative news across all issues, including social ones; a top quality news site in every respect
3 Lifenews superb in reporting news affecting pro-life issues, which are many; this site is very high quality and could move higher in rankings
4 Hotair witty, insightful and timely; superb links; but often neoconservative rather than socially conservative
5 Newsbusters insightful, original, and good across all issues; exposes liberal deceit well
6 Breitbart breaks some big stories and exposes liberal deceit well
7 RedState timely and good volume, with focus on economic, government and election issues
8 Fox News high volume of info, but censors many conservatives[1] and downplays the social issues (for example, see: Fox News and homosexuality)
9 Christian Science Monitor refreshing in its lack of lamestream media liberal bias
10 USA Today better than the lamestream media in its reporting on state-by-state news, and its greater balance; but it has been very feminist and one-sided in its reporting on Title IX in college sports
11 Orange County Register the newspaper for the region that once propelled Ronald Reagan to become the governor of California, and then the President of the United States
12 Financial Times more conservative than the Wall Street Journal

  1. Conservatives censored (or disparaged) by Fox News include Ron Paul, Rand Paul, Pat Buchanan, Tom Pauken, Rev. Tom Euteneuer, Michael Steele, J.D. Hayworth, Steve Lonegan and Tom Coburn; Sharron Angle has been rarely on Fox News, far less than John McCain was, even though Angle's race is far more important than McCain's.
  2. "Factual accuracy," per Conservapedia's Manual of Style: "The party affiliation of a news source should be irrelevant. All that matters is whether the source has a record of telling the truth."
