Analysis / Bias

In review, FrontPage Magazine promotes extreme right-wing propaganda that utilizes loaded language such as this: LEFTISTS HAVE ALWAYS LIED ABOUT AUSCHWITZ. They also routinely promote President Trump’s immigration agenda such as this: ORWELLIAN SPECTACLE OVERSHADOWS IMMIGRATION DEBATE. The primary purpose of this website is to paint Islam followers negatively, such as this: AMERICA’S NEWEST MUSLIM MARTYR IS A CHILD RAPIST AND KILLER. In general, the stories published on this website serve to portray Islam in a negative light. You will never find a positive story, only murder, rape, and terror.

During 2020, Frontpage Magazine frequently promoted misinformation regarding Coronavirus such as this where they claim there is no science behind wearing a mask. There is significant evidence to indicate a mask is effective at slowing the spread of covid-19. Finally, they promoted election fraud conspiracy theories such as this A Stolen Presidential Election in the Nation’s Election Fraud Capital. As of this date, there is no evidence to suggest there was widespread fraud or that the election was stolen. This is a classic propaganda and conspiracy website that many take seriously.
