Notes: According to the Independent Women’s Forum About Page, they described themselves as a nonpartisan research and education institution. Independent Women’s Forum – IWF states its mission is to improve the lives of Americans by increasing the number of women who value free markets and personal liberty. IWF covers a widespread range of topics and issues, of concern to women. IWF is funded by Donors Trust, the John William Pope Foundation, the Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation, the Scaife Foundations, the Randolph Foundation, and the John M. Olin Foundation.
In review, they publish stories with moderately loaded emotional headlines such as “CNN Threatens to ID the Guy Behind the Trump WWE Gif If He Offends CNN Again.” Their articles are always well sourced to credible media, however most favor the right and endorse right wing issues. Therefore, we rate the Independent Women’s Forum Right Biased and HIGH for factual reporting. (M. Huitsing 9/9/2017)
