Analysis / Bias

In review, The American Free Press publishes news with extreme right-wing, nationalist, racist, and antisemitic views. Headlines often use loaded wording such as this: The Media’s Love Affair With Hate Crimes. This story does not provide a single hyperlinked source to validate their claims. The website also publishes 9/11 conspiracies such as this: San Diego 9/11 Truth Group Perseveres. They also frequently endorse Zionism and antisemitism such as this: Someone Tell Trump: It was Jews, Not Arabs, Dancing on 9-11. Finally, they also promote anti-vaccination pseudoscience such as this: What Ever Happened to the Vaccine-Autism Commission? In general, American Free Press is not credible on any level.

Media Bias Fact Check does not independently label a source as a hate group, rather we link to others who have. Below are links that highlight the American Free Press’ connection to hate and antisemitism.

Overall, we rate American Free Press an extreme right biased, tin foil hat level source based on the promotion of conspiracies, racism, antisemitism, and being labeled a hate group by numerous sources. (D. Van Zandt 8/18/2016) Updated (10/26/2019)
