These media sources are moderately to strongly biased toward liberal 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 liberal causes. Some sources in this category may be untrustworthy. See all Left Bias sources.
- Overall, we rate ACHNews Left Biased based on story selection that consistently leans left in perspective. We also rate them Mostly Factual, rather than High, due to a lack of transparency despite proper sourcing of information.
Factual Reporting: MOSTLY FACTUAL
World Press Freedom Rank: USA 45/180
Founded in 2019, ACHNews is a news and opinion website/blog that publishes news from a liberal perspective. The website has a hidden about page that reads “Hi everyone. My name is Annie. I share my life with 2 amazing children, living in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains in North Carolina. My desire is to devote my life to seeking awareness that transforms into cooperation and health.”
ACHNews lacks transparency and does not disclose ownership.
Funded by / Ownership
The website does not disclose ownership, however, it appears to be operated by a single person who does not disclose their full name. Revenue is derived through advertising.
Analysis / Bias
In review, ACHNews is the personal blog of Annie from North Carolina, that primarily publishes news on environmental and wildlife issues. Headlines are not sensationalized and reflect the content of the story such as this: Congress overturns bill and makes the hunting of hibernating bears and denned wolves legal. This story is appropriately sourced to the Humane Society, NBC News and the Huff Post.
Editorially, story selection favors the left through the promotion of environmental awareness such as this: Taylor Energy has Been Leaking up to 30,000 Gallons of Oil a Day for 15 Years and Now Wants to Walk Away. This story, like all others reviewed, is properly sourced. Politically, ACHNews frequently reports negatively on the Trump Administration’s environmental positions: Top USDA Scientist Quits, Claiming that the Trump Administration Tried to Bury His Climate Change Study. In general, ACHNews publishes factual information with proper sourcing and a left-leaning editorial bias.
A factual search reveals they have never been fact-checked by an IFCN fact-checker.
Overall, we rate ACHNews Left Biased based on story selection that consistently leans left in perspective. We also rate them Mostly Factual, rather than High, due to a lack of transparency despite proper sourcing of information. (D. Van Zandt 12/2/2019)
