The American Free Press (AFP) is a populist and nationalist weekly newspaper published in the United States.

Successor to The Spotlight

The paper was founded in 2001 as the successor to The Spotlight, which ceased publication in 2001 when its parent company, Liberty Lobby, was forced into bankruptcy. The paper essentially continued as The Spotlight under a different name maintaining the same staff. The central figure for both papers is Willis Carto.

Sister Publication: Barnes Review

The Barnes Review (TBR), a companion publication to American Free Press, was founded in 1994 after similar legal trouble forced the abandonment of The Journal of Historical Review. TBR focuses on historical revisionism.


The paper includes articles from mainstream columnists such as Ron Paul, Joe Sobran, and Paul Craig Roberts, as well as articles by its own staff, including Michael Collins Piper and formerly Christopher Bollyn. (Piper hosts a talk show on shortwave radio).[1] James P. Tucker, Jr., who has been chronicling the activities of the Bilderberg Group for over thirty years, is also a reporter with American Free Press and was a longtime Spotlight reporter.

Articles by Willis Carto, the founder of Liberty Lobby, also appear occasionally.


Like The Spotlight, American Free Press proclaims a "populist and nationalist" political orientation, and runs opinionated articles and editorials aimed at a mainstream audience across the political spectrum.

The American Free Press is vocally opposed to:

The paper takes a special interest in reporting on the activities of the Bilderberg group and on complementary and alternative medicine (CAM). It has published several articles supportive of Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez.

9/11 Truth movement

American Free Press publishes articles on 9/11 and investigates the official story. One of AFP's former correspondants, Christopher Bollyn[2], is sometimes cited for his reporting in the 9/11 Truth Movement. The 9/11-Truth film Loose Change used material from American Free Press as a source, and the film Oil, Smoke & Mirrors contains an interview with Bollyn. They have been attacked by the Jewish supremacist hate group the ADL of B'nai B'rith on this basis.[3]
