Analysis / Bias
In review, the World Affairs Blog offers articles that delve into geopolitical issues, often critiquing American and Western policies. The blog features articles with a mix of factual reporting and opinion-based commentary. For example, one article discusses the American/Western attacks on China using Uyghurs as geopolitical pawns. The blog tends to use moderate language but leans towards a critical view of Western geopolitics.
The blog also discusses historical contexts to explain current geopolitical situations, such as the history of Uyghur separatism and its relation to Western interests. While the blog claims to be “Objective, Nonpartisan and Insightful,” the choice of topics and the framing of issues suggest a critical stance toward Western geopolitical strategies such as this AMERICA HAS LOST ITS PROXY WAR IN UKRAINE.
Regarding science, the website presents pseudoscientific views regarding COVID-19 vaccines such as this WORST. VACCINES. EVER. Further, although the author criticizes former President Trump, he holds negative opinions regarding Joe Biden with articles like this: AMERICAN EMPIRE IS COLLAPSING IN REAL TIME.
In general, the World Affairs Blog is anti-establishment and frequently criticizes the mainstream. While they criticize the right, they more frequently report negatively on the left, such as this CULTURAL MARXISM EXPLAINED. As demonstrated above, the site delves into pseudoscience and conspiracy theories with a right-leaning bias.
