Analysis / Bias
In review, America Magazine covers news and opinions with a catholic perspective. There is minimal use of loaded words such as Five questions (and answers) about Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court Nomination. Articles are also properly sourced. While they do take somewhat conservative Catholic positions from an editorial standpoint, their reporting of news has a slight left-center bias through favoring more liberal causes such as income equality and environmental protection.
A factual search reveals they have not failed a fact check.
Overall, we rate America Magazine Left-Center biased based on story selection that leans slightly left and High for factual reporting due to proper sourcing. (D. Van Zandt 4/13/2017) Updated (9/29/2018)
