RIGHT BIAS

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.

  • Overall, we rate the American Foreign Policy Council Right Biased based on editorial positions that usually favor the right. We also rate them Mostly Factual, rather than High due to a failed a fact check and a lack of transparency with funding.

Funded by / Ownership

American Foreign Policy Council is a 501(c)3 non-profit located in Washington, DC. Revenue is derived through donations. Funding for AFPC comes from some of the following:

  • Carthage Foundation

  • William H. Donner Foundation

Analysis / Bias

In review, AFPC publishes strategic reports and other reports monitoring the policy progress of other countries from a conservative standpoint (particularly Russia, China, countries in the Middle East and in Asia). The website features a section called “publications” which shows articles published in other publications by AFPC members. Some of the sources they are published in are The Hill and The Diplomat. Another section is entitled news and events, which highlights AFPC events.

Editorially, AFPC leans conservative. For example, while they don’t deny human influenced climate change, they advocate for free market approaches for the solutions. When reporting on President Trump they offer mixed opinions such as these: Why the Trump Administration’s Central Asia Strategy Improves Over Its Predecessors and this critical article Trump is missing an opportunity in Hong Kong.
