Analysis / Bias
In review, Charisma News holds right-wing perspectives such as being anti-abortion. They also routinely support President Trump and conservative Christian causes. They do not support the consensus of science when it comes to climate change. Many stories on this website are factually accurate and sourced properly, however there are more than a few that are not in line with the consensus of science. While Charisma News is not on the SPLC hate list, they frequently criticize the SPLC for an anti-christian bias.
In general, Charisma News reports news fairly, but selectively to favor a Christian perspective that is not always in line with science.
