Notes: Renew America is an extreme right Christian New and opinion website. According to their about page: “Renew America is a grassroots organization that supports the self-evident truths found in the Declaration of Independence, and their faithful application through upholding the U.S. Constitution, as written. Its purpose is to thoughtfully and courageously advance the cause of our nation’s Founders.”
In review, Renew America presents information with an extreme right wing bias that always favors the right. The authors frequently use questionable and/or far right sources in their articles. Renew America does not support the consensus of science on many issues such as climate change and evolution. They also promote far right conspiracies such as Obama being a secret Muslim and birtherism. They also promote abortion as black genocide. Further, one of their writers Bryan Fischer has been labeled anti-LGBT by the SPLC. Overall, Renew America is a Questionable source with extreme right wing bias that promotes conspiracy theories and propaganda. (D. Van Zandt 12/30/2017)
