Analysis / Bias

In review, The Clarion Project produces films that have been described as anti-Islamic propaganda. The website features a map that lists extremist groups in each state. The map only provides what they perceive as Islamic Extremist and do not include such organizations as the KKK or other right-wing extremist groups. The Clarion Project also offers a news section that provides commentary and analysis from a right-leaning perspective. Articles and headlines utilize moderately loaded language that is derogatory toward Muslims such as this: Is Muslim Reform Even Possible? When it comes to sourcing they rely on a mix of credible sources as well as poor sources such as The Blaze and Jihad Watch.

Media Bias Fact Check does not determine hate group status and relies on 3rd party analysis for evidence. The following have concluded or mentioned The Clarion Project as a potential hate group or anti-Islamic organization.

In general, most news reporting by the Clarion Project is negative toward Muslims with a strong right-leaning bias that is not always factual.
