The American Free Press is a weekly newspaper published in the United States.
The newspaper's direct ancestor was the publication The Spotlight, which ceased publication in 2001 when its parent organization, Liberty Lobby, was forced into bankruptcy. Like The Spotlight and Liberty Lobby, Willis Carto, one of America's most influential political racial theorists known for his promotion of antisemitic conspiracy theories and Holocaust denial, was one of its founders. The newspaper describes itself as "maverick, independent grass-roots media" and proclaims a "populist and nationalist" political orientation.
American Free Press was originally founded by Willis Carto.
Writers for the newspaper include Michael Collins Piper, whose work has been characterized as anti-semitic and James P. Tucker, Jr., a longtime Spotlight reporter whose focus is the Bilderberg Group. Articles by Carto also appear occasionally. James Edwards, who now hosts The Political Cesspool (broadcast as a service of the neo-Nazi Stormfront) was also a former writer for the newspaper.
