Top 10 Conservative Political News Sites

They’re called fascists by the other side of the political fence. Conspiritards, birthers, basement dwellers, and nazis are all lumped into one group – the conservative republicans.

Although the political majority in 2018, conservatives aren’t well represented in the media. If you’re a conservative, you’re pretty much stuck with Fox News for your perspective in the mainstream media. There are a ton of conservative websites, however, and not all are extremist.

We’ve filtered through the noise to provide a list of the top 10 best political websites to get news from a conservative point of view.

10. Breitbart

Launched in 2007, Breitbart News Network is infamous for some of the people it’s employed over the years, including Steve Bannon and Milo Yiannoploulos. It’s one of the websites that rallied behind Trump from the beginning and Bannon even credits it (and himself) with getting him elected president. It’s also been the center of several anti-semitic and white supremacist controversies. Still, it’s an undeniable force to be reckoned with in today’s society.

9. Gateway Pundit

The Gateway Pundit was created in 2004 by Jim Hoft, and its White House correspondent Lucian Wintrich often makes headlines. The site is a favorite of top conservative commentators like Sarah Palin and Sean Hannity and is known for being far-right, pro-Trump, and proud. Aside from news, The Gateway Pundit is willing to publish false rumors and propaganda to sensationalize a story and push its agenda.

8. The Wall Street Journal

Founded in 1889, The Wall Street Journal has a storied history. It’s won 40 Pulitzer Prizes and is a trusted resource for news regarding Wall Street. It started as news briefs published by Dow Jones & Company and still focuses mostly on financial news. Still, it’s never afraid to delve into politics, and when it does, it’s with a definite conservative slant.

7. The Hill

The Hill is a print newspaper and online website focusing on Washington D.C. politics since 1994. It is hyper-focused on national politics and Congress in particular. The Hill has the largest circulation of any Capitol Hill publication and is the best resource for in-depth analysis of public policy and current politics happening in both houses of Congress.

6. Newsmax

Newsmax was founded in 1998 and has been influencing American conservative circles ever since. Focusing on domestic and international politics, finance, and health, it also has a print magazine and cable news channel. Its consistently ranked as one of the most read conservative news sites by Nielsen and Pew Research, and the editorial staff has no problem cozying up to notable politicians on both sides of the political fence.

5. The Blaze

The Blaze started in 2011 by Glenn Beck and is available on TV, radio, and the Internet. You’ll find it on Roku, Sling TV, iHeartRadio, and its own app for Android and iOS. It’s had several notable hosts, with young, blonde Tomi Lahren being one of the most popular. The platform is more libertarian than conservative, supporting a removal of government from most every day activities.

4. Daily Caller

The Daily Caller was launched in 2010 as a conservative alternative to the Huffington Post. It has found itself the target of ire from liberal outlets for its often far-right stances on issues. In 2017, it featured an infamous video of FCC Chairman Ajit Pai doing the Harlem Shake and mocking other played-out Internet memes. It’s also been known to feature articles from white supremacists and other extremists.

3. The Federalist

Created in 2013, The Federalist is an online magazine covering politics, policy, culture, and religion with a philosophical angle. It’s never afraid to take the extreme right viewpoint or invite contributors from ultra-conservative groups. Its stories are often written by younger writers who have a connection to younger audiences, making it much more relevant than many conservative news sites geared toward the elderly.

2. The Drudge Report

The Drudge report was created as an email newsletter in 1995 and rose to prominence for breaking the Monica Lewinksi-Bill Clinton scandal in 1998 when Newsweek balked at the story. It’s mostly a conservative media aggregation site, although it does post original content too. It’s a great place to learn more about what the Republican media as a whole is talking about.

1. Fox News

Launched in 1996, Fox News is billionaire media mogul Rupert Murdoch’s middle finger to the liberal news outlets. It’s aired on cable and satellite TV and you’ll often find it playing at Marriotts and McDonald’s across the country. It was the only working news site on jail tablets. It’s also a favorite channel watched by President Donald Trump, who constantly parrots the network on Twitter. Fox News is the old guard of conservative media outlets, and its website is filled with media-rich stories pushing the right-wing agenda.


Dr. Brian Penny is a former Business Analyst and Operations Manager at Bank of America turned whistleblower, troll, and freelance writer. You can find his work in Cracked, High Times, HuffPost, Lifewire, Forbes, Fast Company, and dozens of other places, although much of it is no longer under his name. Dr. Penny loves annoying fake media.

    Need to update your description of Fox News. It is much more liberal now since Murdoch’s sons took over. You can tell the talking heads have been told to take a much less conservative approach. Many conservatives are turning to OANN out of disgust.

    Saw your site and this quote: Although the political majority in 2018, conservatives aren’t well represented in the media.

    Consider the meaning of conservative: Adjective 1. holding to traditional attitudes and values and cautious about change or innovation, typically in relation to politics or religion.
    noun 1. a person who is averse to change and holds to traditional values and attitudes, typically in relation to politics.

    What does it take to “create something”. Like movies, or almost any new thing (as opposed to copying new things). It takes being open to new ideas or concepts, like social media. Maybe, in about 10 years, conservatives will start putting up some pale imitations of social media, like Fox is a pale imitation of NBC.

    Similar ideas explain the relative scarcity of conservatives in higher education. Being adverse to new things includes being adverse to learning new stuff
