Analysis / Bias

In review, American Military News’ reporting on national security and US military utilizes minimally loaded language in their headlines. Articles such as AZ man get 12 years for helping college students join ISIS or Trump to withdraw half of 14,000 US troops in Afghanistan, reports say. Both of these stories are properly sourced to credible media outlets. Besides original content, American Military News also curates and republishes military related news from other credible sources such as Stars and Stripes (Least Biased), Hindustan Times (Left-Center), San Diego Union-Tribune (Least Biased), Roll Call (Least Biased), and Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty (Least Biased).

American Military News also has an opinion page that is reasonably balanced and does not offer extreme opinions. A general overview shows many editorials about gun ownership rights and pro-military positions, which makes sense given the genre of this website.
