Founded in 2002 as a website to support Republican Alan Keyes, Renew America is an extreme right Christian news 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.”

Funded by / Ownership

Renew America does not clearly state ownership on the website, thereby lacking transparency. There also does not appear to be a clear means of funding and revenue generation.

Analysis / Bias

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. In general, this website aggregates to other sources that have poor track records such as Newsmax, WND, and Sean Hannity who has a horrible track record with fact checking. 

Overall, we rate Renew America as a Questionable source based on extreme right wing bias, promotion of propaganda and conspiracy theories, as well as publication of fake news with the use of poor sources. (D. Van Zandt 12/30/2017) Updated (2/7/2020)
