Analysis / Bias

In review, America Magazine covers news and opinions from 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 properly sourced to credible media outlets.

While they take somewhat conservative Catholic positions from an editorial standpoint, their news reporting has a slight left-center bias by favoring more liberal causes such as income equality and environmental protection.
