These media sources are moderately to strongly biased toward conservative causes through story selection and/or political affiliation. They may utilize strong loaded words (wording that attempts to influence an audience by using appeal to emotion or stereotypes), publish misleading reports and omit reporting of information that may damage conservative causes. Some sources in this category may be untrustworthy. See all Right Bias sources.
- Overall, we rate the C2C Journal Right Biased based on editorial positions that consistently align with conservative/libertarian perspectives. We also rate them Mostly Factual, rather than High due to a lack of transparency in disclosing ownership by the Manning Foundation.
Factual Reporting: MOSTLY FACTUAL
World Press Freedom Rank: Canada 16/180
Founded in 2007, C2C Journal is a Canadian print and online publication that covers current political, cultural, and economic issues from a libertarian perspective. According to their about page “C2C’s unabashed bias is in favor of free markets, democratic governance, and individual liberty. We strive for balance, fairness, and accuracy in our reporting and commentary. Our mission is to explore and develop “Ideas that Lead” by encouraging writers to push boundaries, challenge orthodoxies, and advance arguments rooted in the values and principles of classical liberalism and western civilization.” The current editor-in-chief is George Koch.
Funded by / Ownership
The C2C Journal lacks transparency as they do not clearly indicate they are owned by the Manning Foundation. According to Press Progress, the Manning Foundation is a conservative nonprofit that has made controversial claims. Revenue for C2C is derived through donations and subscription fees.
Analysis / Bias
In review, the C2C Journal produces original long-form journalism from a libertarian/conservative perspective. Articles and headlines often utilize loaded emotional wording such as this Statue Smashers: Why History Protesters Are The New Totalitarians. This long-form article is properly sourced to local media as well as larger publications such as the New York Times. Story selection favors the right and often denigrates the left such as The Unbearable Wokeness Of Being In Stratford.
When it comes to reporting on scientific issues they do not deny human influence on climate change but do not agree with progressive solutions Justin Trudeau’s Job-Killing Climate Change Plan. In general, most stories favor a free-market conservative platform and are mostly factual.
