MXM News is a news aggregation site launched in 2022, which curates news stories from various publishers across the ideological spectrum. It is also available as a free mobile app. Axios notes that the content is curated by a small team of around eight staffers, but the website does not provide information about its location.
Funded by / Ownership
According to a Staten Island Advance article, MxM News was founded by Donald Trump Jr. and former Trump spokesperson Taylor Budowich to combat perceived bias against conservative viewpoints in news aggregation. Former Trump White House aide Cliff Sims has an equity partnership with the company. Funding for MxM News comes primarily from advertising and subscriptions.
Analysis / Bias
MxM News curates news stories from various publishers across the ideological spectrum, including CNN, Yahoo News, Fox News, Daily Caller, Newsweek, AP, and Breitbart. However, MxM mostly curates content from right-leaning sources, potentially indicating a bias towards conservative viewpoints. As they primarily curate news stories from right-leaning and factually questionable sources (Breitbart, Newsmax), MxM News often covers controversial topics, such as ‘trans refuge’ bill strips parental rights,” “France bans TikTok from govt. Phones,” “Media twists itself into knots covering transgender school shooter,” and “Wisconsin school bans Miley Cyrus, Dolly Parton pro-LGBT song.
As evidenced above, MxM favors a conservative perspective through story selection that favors the right and sometimes aggregates news stories from questionable sources with poor fact-check records.
Failed Fact Checks
- There is no record of a third-party fact check as they do not create original content.
