Analysis / Bias
In review, Chronicles differs from other Conservative publications in that they are anti-interventionist militarily. They uphold a more Paleoconservative-Libertarian position in their writings. One of the most famous writers for this publication is well-known nationalist Patrick Buchanan. Chronicles use minimally loaded language in their articles, such as this: Commeration of Amiens. While this article is well written, it does not contain a hyperlink source but relies on block quotes. In fact, it isn’t easy to find any sourcing on this website. Virtually all stories favor the right.
In 2022, they promote vaccine hesitancy using unreliable sources Michelle Malkin such as this What Really Happened to Justin Bieber? They also have promoted election fraud conspiracies, as evidenced in this article https://chroniclesmagazine.org/web/election-oddities/
Finally, Chronicles has been criticized by the Southern Poverty Law Center for promoting the Neo-Confederate Movement. In general, they are right-biased and sometimes promote misinformation.
