Aug. 2021 Independent Review 

RedState is transparent about its bias, openly billing itself as a conservative news blog.

While RedState doesn't have an "About" page, a support plea on the site (pulled by AllSides on Aug. 25, 2021) read: "Support Conservative Journalism. RedState has been a leading conservative news site for over 15 years. With your support, we'll continue to expose the Left, hold big government accountable, protect your constitutional rights, and defend conservative journalism."

An Aug. 2021 Independent Review by an AllSides staffer found RedState largely posts opinion/analysis pieces (it is a blog, not a hard news website). It uses qualifying adjectives and sensationalist words in its headlines, for example (emphasis ours):

About RedState

RedState is a conservative political blog. According to Wikipedia, prior to 2017, it organized "RedState gatherings," a summer convention for conservative activists and grassroots political activism which featured many prominent public figures in conservative politics.

RedState was founded in 2004 as a 527 group (a type of tax-exempt organization) by Joshua Treviño, Ben Domenech, and Mike Krempasky.

In 2015, Donald Trump, a Republican presidential candidate at the time, was disinvited from the annual RedState Gathering over comments he made about Megyn Kelly.
