Dec. 2019 Editorial Review: Newsmax Ratings Split
The AllSides team conducted an Editorial Review of Newsmax on Dec. 13, 2019, and we decided to provide separate media bias ratings for Newsmax's opinion section and news section. AllSides provides separate media bias ratings for the news and opinion sections of a website if the bias of those sections significantly differs.
During the review conducted with a multipartisan team, AllSides found Newsmax's opinion section consistently features opinions from a conservative perspective. It occasionally features libertarian perspectives, but rarely features left-leaning perspectives or commentary on issues generally considered important to those on the left.
AllSides was pleased to find that Newsmax opinion is very transparent, as the media outlet clearly labels the perspective of its opinion pieces on its homepage. For example, an op-ed may be labeled "conservative cause," "libertarian perspective," "conservative warrior," or some other. Labeling the viewpoint of any given op-ed helps the reader to easily identify different perspectives.
