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 uses 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 rather relies on block quotes. In fact, it is difficult to find any sourcing on this website. Virtually, all stories favor the right.

Chronicles has been criticized by the Southern Poverty Law Center for promotion of the Neo-Confederate Movement.

Overall, we rate Chronicles Magazine Right Biased based on story selection that favors the right and Mixed for factual reporting due to zero sourcing of information. (6/18/2016) Updated (D. Van Zandt 8/10/2018)
