Analysis / Bias

While the stories on CM are well written and use factual sources, the sources rarely bear more than a passing relevance to the conclusions drawn. Crisis Magazine uses none of the over-the-top language of other biased sites on both ends; their extremism is evident in the tone and characterizations presented in the stories. Example: In the article “Does “Climate Change” Really Cause Hunger,” CM repeats many of the half-truths and distorted “facts” popular among climate change deniers while presenting no links to any sources, credible or otherwise, for these claims.

Editorially, all stories favor a Christian Right perspective and sometimes use poor sources. Coating extremism in seemingly moderate terms makes it no less extreme, only easier to read.

Overall, we rate Crisis Magazine Right Biased based on the promotion of a conservative Christian perspective. We also rate them Mixed for factual reporting due to poor sourcing. (D. Kelley 11/16/2017) Updated (10/29/2021)
