History

According to their about page, LifeSiteNews “is a non-profit Internet service dedicated to issues of culture, life, and family.”  The Campaign Life Coalition founded the website, a Canadian political lobbyist organization founded in 1978. From Toronto, the organization advocates for socially conservative values. In addition to its initial goals of passing restrictions on abortion and euthanasia, Campaign Life Coalition advocates for what it describes as traditional family values, including opposition to same-sex marriage and age-inappropriate sex education.

Analysis / Bias

In review, LifeSiteNews primarily reports on anti-abortion, anti-gay marriage, and pro-Evangelical Christian issues. An example of a pro-Christian story is why being Christian means traveling with Jesus from Bethlehem to Calvary. LifeSiteNews also has a favorable opinion of former President Trump, as evidenced by this piece: How Trump brought Christmas back to America. Editorially, every story is right-leaning, including this story that sources non-credible sources such as Rush Limbaugh and CNSNews. In general, story selection favors the Christian right and denigrates the left, while not always being factual in reporting.
