These media sources are moderately to strongly biased toward conservative causes through story selection and/or political affiliation. They may utilize strong loaded words (wording that attempts to influence an audience by using appeal to emotion or stereotypes), publish misleading reports and omit reporting of information that may damage conservative causes. Some sources in this category may be untrustworthy. See all Right Bias sources.

Factual Reporting: MIXED

Notes: Facts and Logic About the Middle East (FLAME) is a non-profit pro-Israel organization based in San Francisco, California. Its stated purpose is “the research and publication of the facts regarding developments in the Middle East and exposing false propaganda that might harm the interests of the United States and its allies in that area of the world.” The source has an extreme bias for Israel and against Muslims. According to the The Village Voice, when a reporter “pointed out the overt bigotry” in a FLAME ad in 1998 that described Islam as “virulent” and blamed it for promoting violence against the U.S. and Israel, FLAME’s Gerardo Joffe said “All Arab Muslims may not be a bunch of fanatics, but I’ve never met one who isn’t.”
