Upward News Rated Lean Right in Oct. 2021 Independent Review

An Oct. 2021 Independent Review by an AllSides editor determined that Upward News has a Lean Right bias. 

At the time of review, Upward News' content rejected left-wing "woke" ideology. The website included articles that were critical of the elite, left-wing/Democratic establishment, including critique of COVID-19 lockdowns and establishment views on COVID-19 treatment and policies (in an article about ivermectin, which some argued was an effective COVID-19 treatment being suppressed by elites, Upward said journalists are "politicizing potentially effective ways to treat COVID.") Upward News also ran an article critical of the concept of equity (as opposed to equality), which has been embraced among the social justice left; it also published an article critical of Big Tech's intervention on medical information, as well as a piece arguing that reverse racism is real and white people can experience racism. In general, the site publishes mostly opinion/analysis pieces that come from a right-wing view.

Some articles that were featured on the day of review include:
