Analysis / Bias
Canada Free Press is an overtly Christian, extreme right website that peddles conspiracy theories such as Obama being an Islamic Terrorist and 9/11 as an inside job. They also promote pseudosciences such as human-influenced Climate Change Denial and Creationism.
Canada Free Press routinely uses strong loaded wording that always favors the right such as this: New Poll Results Freaking out Democrats. When it comes to sourcing, they favor right biased sources and occasionally use sources that we have rated as Questionable.
A factual search reveals numerous failed fact checks.
Overall, we rate Canada Free Press Questionable based on extreme right-wing bias, promotion of conspiracies, and numerous false claims. (10/2/2016) Updated (D. Van Zandt 9/26/2020)
