History

AMERICAblog is a liberal American blog founded by John Aravosis in April 2004, with several co-bloggers. According to their about page, “AMERICAblog is a journal of news and opinion about US politics, both domestic and foreign, from a progressive point of view.” John Aravosis is the current editor-in-chief.

In 2011, Aravosis received a tip that British oil giant BP (British Petroleum) was posting falsified photos to its website during the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. He analyzed the photos, then published an article on AMERICAblog proving that the images were doctored electronically.

Analysis / Bias

In review, AmericaBlog uses moderately strong loaded words and somewhat sensational headlines such as: From Russia with Poison. Most information on the website is either sourced properly or quoted from other sources. Editorially, almost all stories favor the left, such as this: How to win the climate change wars and frequently reports negatively on the Trump administration, Mueller needs to explain why the F he didn’t indict Trump. In general, story selection favors the Progressive Left and denigrates the right, though the information is properly sourced.
