Thanks to the freedom of the Internet, never before have right wing political thinkers had so many choices when it comes to finding the best conservative news sites.
To make things easier for you, we’ve gathered the largest ordered list of best conservative websites online, sorted them by popularity, and added some of our own commentary.There are so many, it’s hard to know which are the top conservative websites worth your time, and which aren’t.
The sites are sorted by Alexa Rank, a highly-reputable service which measures a site’s popularity and traffic. The lower the Alexa Ranking, the more popular the site.
FOX News needs no explanation. It made its debut in 1996 and has been driving liberals bonkers ever since, dominating the ratings along the way. FOX News is not only the most popular Republican news source online, it’s one of the largest websites, period.
One America News Network has had explosive growth in 2020, and it’s easy to see why. They have a world-class team.
Founded by the late, great Andrew Breitbart in 2007, Breitbart is one of the most controversial right wing sites in the world. Critics often smear the site as being all sorts of -ists (racist, sexist . . . you know the routine by now), but honest people know better. Breitbart saw a meteoric rise leading up to the 2016 Presidential Election, and continues to be a dominating force in right wing news.
Founded in 2009, and independently owned by the Brown family, Western Journal (and its sister Conservative Tribune) has become a powerhouse in conservative circles. The site prides itself on its honest content, which the site claims is grounded in traditional Christian ethics. Works for me.
Started in 1995, Matt Drudge’s masterpiece rose to prominence in the wake of Bill Clinton’s Monica Lewinsky scandal (Wikipedia claims they broke the story). The DRUDGE REPORT acts as a news aggregator, collecting and posting the biggest right wing stories of the day on their homepage. If you want a broad overview of what’s happening in politics, DRUDGE REPORT is what you’re looking for.
Started in 2020, Dan Bongino’s website has quickly replaced the increasingly hostile Drudge Report as the go-to source for curated right wing news. Dan’s a great guy, so congratulations on his huge success and becoming a conservative superstar.
The Daily Caller is the work of conservative megastar (and smartest man alive) Tucker Carlson. It’s been around since 2010, and has continued to rise in prominence. The site is ad-heavy, true, but the content is worth it, as evidenced by its tens-of-millions of monthly visitors.
As you probably guessed from the name, Zero Hedge started out as an investment-focused blog, a subject it stills deal in. Somewhere along the way they drifted into political news and commentary, where they’ve found great success. If you’re into investing, and have an ideological leaning to the right, Zero Hedge is a must-bookmark website.
Daily Wire has become the cream of the right wing crop when it comes to editorials. Lead by Ben Shapiro (and let’s not forget Ben Shapiro’s wife, who happens to be a doctor), the high quality of the site’s content and popularity of its staff has lead to it becoming a a phenomenon. In under four years, it’s become one of the most-popular, most-respect pro-Republican sites in the world. It’s only a matter of time before Daily Wire reaches the top five.
It doesn’t get much more controversial than InfoWars, founded and lead by the legendary Alex Jones. The site’s content tends to be on the more extreme end of the spectrum, sure, but sometimes that’s a good thing. Critics won’t admit it, but a not insignificant number of InfoWars’ “crazy conspiracies” have proven true. Sadly, social media networks conspired to synchronously ban Jones and InfoWars in the summer of 2018. Despite this, the site continues to rack up millions of monthly visitors.
Founded in 2005, the Washington Examiner started out as a daily newspaper. It didn’t take long before they realized print media was going the way of the dinosaur, at which point they focused on online media. The switch worked out brilliantly, as the Examiner has become one of the biggest names in the right wing blogosphere.
Another site which critics would call “controversial,” The Gateway Pundit churns out a huge number of articles. Founded in 2004 by dapper Jim Hoft (Gateway is a reference to Hoft’s hometown of St. Louis), The Gateway Pundit has become a staple of right wing readers. Don’t believe the fake news label; it’s a typical smear job.
The Washington Times website branched off from the Washington Times newspaper, which has been in circulation since 1982. We’ll forgive you if you get it and the Washington Examiner confused. We do, too.
Glenn Beck’s The Blaze used to be one of the huge right-wing sites, but it’s taken a sizable popularity hit, thanks in part to its anti-Trump position, and now sits outside of the top 10. They recently merged with Mark Levin‘s CRTV, forming Blaze Media, in hopes of regaining lost glory.
WND was founded in 1997 by Joseph Farah. Their coverage extends beyond politics and into finances and religion. Wikipedia and other leftist outlets describe the site as — GASP! — “far right” and “fringe” — the horror!
Tom Fitton’s hard-hitting investigative journalism. Judicial Watch’s coverage of the shadiness of the Russiagate conspiracy is the best in the business. If you want deeper reporting, give Judicial Watch a go.
Founded by Ben Domenech and Sean Davis in 2013, The Federalist has quickly risen to become one of the most popular right wing sites in the world. They have great writers who publish great content, and are a worthy addition to your daily visits.
Created by Michelle Malkin in 2012, Twitchy has more of a fun, youthful feel than most of the sites on this list. I would call it the right wing version of BuzzFeed, but I like them too much for that. How about the right wing version of BuzzFeed that’s not completely idiotic?
The Conservative Treehouse publishes original editorials, with a highly-engaged audience in the comments section. If you like not only reading about politics, but discussing them, The Conservative Treehouse might be for you. And as long as you’re gonna hang out in the Conservative Treehouse, why not check out the best slingshots to go with it.
Red State’s another conservative site that tried to go the never Trump route and ended up paying for it. They used to be a big shot, but those days ended once their traffic started plummeting over the past three years.
Newbusters is Brent Bozell’s valiant (and successful) attempt at exposing liberal bias in the media and television as a whole. I’ve got to warn you, some of the blatant hypocrisy this site exposes might get you a little agitated.
The third wheel in the trio of major Daily conservative sites (Daily Caller and Daily Wire are the other two), Daily Signal is a distant third, but still puts out quality content on a . . . eerm . . . daily basis.
A hot-shot newcomer to the list. Big League Politics has some popular right wing journalists working for them, and aren’t afraid to post controversy. Expect them to continue aggressively climbing this list in the months to come.
The Rebel is a highly-controversial outlet based out of Canada. They’ve had associations with a who’s who of online right wing stars, like Gavin McInnes, Laura Loomer, Lauren Southern, Tommy Robinson, and Jack Prosobiec, among others. Naturally, they’ve been smeared by the comically-bias leftist media, but they continue on, with no fudges given.
The Blacksphere is operated by former FOX News contributor Kevin Jackson. I say former, because the P.C. police got a hold of him last year after he made comments on Brett Kavanaugh’s accusers. Neat fact: Kevin was the first person to kindly and generously reach out to me when I was trying to start Right Smarts, so he’ll always be good in my books. Support him by checking out his website, and following him on Twitter.
Matt Walsh has written for most of the top conservative sites, and this is his homebase. He’s one of the most straightforward, logical thinkers around, and liberals hate him for it — which means you’ll love him, just like me.
Mike Cernovich’s website. It covers mindset as much as anything, but most consider Mike on the right, and he’s always been good to me, so he’s getting a spot on the list. His new film Hoaxed is a must-watch, by the way.
