Funded by / Ownership

Olympic Media owns and publishes American Wire News. According to Open Secrets, Olympic Media receives funding from prominent Republican politicians and PACS. For example, in the 2022 election cycle, they received a total of $4,831,681. Notable funders include Jim Jordan for Congress $1,293,441, Great American Patriot Project $1,102,481, Cawthorn for North Carolina $488,408, and Josh Hawley for Senate $244,084. 

The American Wire News website lacks transparency as they do not disclose these funders. Advertising, donations, and a store that sells conservative branded merchandise generate revenue.

Analysis / Bias

American Wire publishes conservative commentary, news stories, and a daily newsletter for subscribers. Articles and headlines often contain emotionally loaded language such as this Father desperately tries to stop pediatrician wife from chemically castrating 9-yr-old son, Cali law is against him, and Catfight! MTG delivers smackdown of dramatic AOC when the two go rounds on Twitter

Regarding sourcing, American Wire typically relies on credible sources like The Hill, Politico, and Reuters. They also republish articles from the factually Mixed Daily Caller and link to BizPac Review articles and social media posts. We have also found evidence of them referencing the discredited Gateway Pundit.

Editorially, story selection and opinion pieces exclusively favor the right, such as this ‘We’re ashamed of nothing’: Matt Gaetz breaks Dem hype to ‘expose the truth’ about Jan 6th. Articles frequently denigrate Democrats, such as this Pelosi mocked for botching final speech as House Speaker: ‘Happy Shwanza to all and to all a good night!’ Further, articles often promote politicians who have funded Olympic Media.

When reporting on scientific issues such as Covid-19 vaccines, they generally report factually. Still, they tend to highlight the negatives of the vaccine, such as this Study reveals myocarditis risk up to 3 times higher with Moderna COVID-19 vaccine than with Pfizer. Regarding the “stolen 2020 election” conspiracy theory, they do not directly endorse that the election was stolen; however, they report the claims of others, such as this Trump claps back at Chris Christie for calling on GOP to move beyond 2020 election. In general, American Wire News is a conservative propaganda website based on promoting paying Republican politicians and consistent one-sided reporting that favor the right.
