Andy Ngo is an independent journalist, photographer, and editor at Quillette magazine.
AllSides conducted independent research in July 2019 that found Andy Ngo's writing has a Center bias, perhaps inching toward Lean Right. When reporting, Ngo reaches out to sources on both the left and right in order to secure quotes and perspectives from people on both sides of the political spectrum. However, Ngo often chooses to report on topics that those on the center-right would view as the excesses of the progressive movement, such as hate crime hoaxes. Ngo has been particularly vocal in his criticism of Antifa, a far-Left political group that has a faction in the city and throughout the United States. This fact has led many commentators and media outlets on both the left and right to refer to him as a conservative, including CNN, Fox News, and Vox.
Ngo lives in Portland, OR and has done extensive reporting on the city's faction of Antifa, as well as hate crime hoaxes in the city. Ngo says his reporting on Antifa's activities has led the group to target him for violence. In July 2019, Andy Ngo was beaten at a Portland rally in which the presence of far-right and far-left groups resulted in violence. AllSides found blatant media bias in coverage of the event.
In March 2019, Ngo published a piece in the New York Post that questioned the legitimacy of various hate crime claims made by some members of the LGBTQ community in Portland.
