Analysis / Bias

In review, Charisma News holds right-wing perspectives such as being anti-abortion. They also routinely support former President Trump and conservative Christian causes. They do not support the consensus of science regarding climate change. Many stories on this website are factually accurate and sourced properly; however, more than a few 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.

Charisma News reports news from a Christian perspective that is not always in line with science. For example, they hold anti-science views on Covid-19 vaccines and have promoted Donald Trump’s election fraud conspiracies which have been thoroughly debunked. In general, Charisma News is a right-biased conspiracy and pseudoscience website.
