The website lacks transparency as it does not openly disclose ownership, though it is assumed Mike LaChance is the owner. Revenue is derived through advertising.

Analysis / Bias

In review, American Lookout does not produce original news reporting, but rather provides a conservative opinion before quoting or linking to the full article from another source. Some of the sources they link to are the Mixed factual Daily Caller, the Questionable Breitbart, RedState, and Townhall. Wording denigrates Democrats such as this Democrats Panic As Suburban Vote Begins Slipping Away From Joe Biden, while other stories glorify Republican President Trump such as this President Trump Nominated For Nobel Peace Prize AGAIN For Helping Broker Deal Between Kosovo And Serbia. In general, all stories favor the right and mostly denigrate the left while consistently using very poor sources who frequently fail fact checks.

Failed Fact Checks

Overall, we rate American Lookout right biased and Questionable due to the frequent use of poor sources that have failed fact checks, lack of transparency with ownership, one-sided reporting, and failed fact checks of their own. (D. Van Zandt 11/23/2016) Updated (9/12/2020)
