Publicly the site does not purport to be a traditional news source. On its "About' page, the site declares, "The Daily Wire does not claim to be without bias," and goes on to
say, "We're opinionated, we're noisy, and we're having a good time."
It's not clear that the millions of people engaging with the site's news stories every month recognize that. The Daily Wire's content looks no different in Facebook's newsfeed than an article from a local newspaper, making it potentially difficult to
distinguish between more and less reliable or biased information sources.
