Analysis / Bias
Gingrich 360, founded by Newt Gingrich, encompasses a range of multimedia content, including articles reflecting Gingrich’s political and historical perspectives. This analysis assesses the platform’s content, particularly its articles, for bias and credibility.
Newt Gingrich’s background as a politician and “historian” (He has faced criticism for his political and partisan approach to history and for using the title “historian” in a political context, which some historians and fact-checkers have disputed.) significantly influences the content of Gingrich 360. His varied stance on scientific issues, especially climate change, and strong affiliation with the Republican Party and former President Donald Trump are reflected in the site’s tone and perspective. Articles such as “The Left Will Never Stop Attacking Trump” demonstrate a clear right-wing bias, portraying Trump’s indictment as a result of political animosity rather than legal grounds.
Gingrich’s writing style, marked by emotive language and an us-versus-them narrative, caters to Trump’s supporters, often depicting them as targets of a biased establishment. This approach indicates conservative, pro-Trump opinion journalism, prioritizing political interpretation over impartial analysis.
Adding to this analysis is the article “The Delaware Sopranos Put America’s Survival at Risk,” which criticizes the Biden administration and suggests a corrupt family dynamic akin to a criminal organization. (TV show Sopranos) This article further exemplifies the site’s right-leaning bias and preference for politically charged narratives over objective reporting.
Finally, the website also promotes baseless conspiracy theories like the debunked Seth Rich conspiracy theory in 2017 and the 2020 election being stolen from Donald Trump: What Can We Do To Stop the Steal? This article has been removed from the website but still exists in the archive. In general, Gingrich 360 holds far-right biases and is not always factual.
