Analysis / Bias
The Armed Forces Press is a conservative imposter website that is designed to look like a legitimate local newspaper. All of the websites use a similar design template.
The website publishes news related to the Military that routinely favors the right, such as this: Biden Doxxing Operators Was Not An Accident, It Is Treason. This article uses the Questionable Miami Independent as a reference.
Editorially, all stories favor the right, particularly former President Trump, such as A Race Between Escalating Nuclear War With Moscow And Trump Returning To Ensure Peace. While denigrating the left with conspiracy theories like this America – Do You Really Think Biden’s War Is Not Coming Here? Part 1.
The Armed Forces Press also promotes Covid-19 disinformation. In general, this is an imposter website that promotes extreme right-wing conspiracy theories and pseudoscience.
Failed Fact Checks
- A third party has not fact-checked The Armed Forces Press; however, other sources in the imposter network have failed checks.
Overall, we rate The Armed Forces Press as an extreme right-biased imposter website and Questionable based on the promotion of propaganda, conspiracy theories, pseudoscience, poor sourcing, and false claims. (D. Van Zandt 11/05/2023)
