Were we stand

Alaska Watchman is an independent news agency dedicated to providing accurate and extensive coverage of issues concerning religious freedom and speech, pro-life issues, family life and parental rights, homosexuality and LGBT issues, education and culture. Our purpose is to report on topics rarely covered by other media outlets, and with an emphasis on how these issues affect Alaskans.

Our weekly online reports are available for use by numerous organizations, publications, educators, professionals and political and religious groups across Alaska and beyond.

We have a predominant emphasis on issues directly related to Alaska and our reports include breaking news, features, news briefs, calendar events, letters to the editor and op-ed pieces.

Alaska Watchman Core Principles
  1. Accuracy in content and professional-level writing is a high priority. When errors or clarifications are needed we will run them prominently and in a timely manner.
  2. While there are several pro-life and family news outlets that focus on national and international news, Alaska Watchman recognizes that most changes in society begin at the local level. By informing readers about the activities of local political bodies, public officials, elected representatives, public organizations and religious and cultural groups we aim to equip Alaskans with knowledge to make a difference at the grassroots level.
  3. Our reports emphasize the social value of traditional Judeo-Christian principles and the natural law but are also respectful of all authentic religions and cultures that esteem life, family and universal norms of morality.
  4. We understand that respect for life and family, the foundations of any enduring culture, are endangered by contemporary ideologies that attempt to eliminate or minimize Christian morality and natural law principles from the public square.
  5. Alaska Watchman understands that abortion, euthanasia, homosexuality and all other life and family issues are interconnected. We attempt to provide readers with the big picture and the most useful and up-to-date information regarding these issues.
  6. In these and other areas, we attempt to bring greater clarity and foster constructive dialogue that can help inform appropriate actions for the common good.

  • Ross Perrine says:

    Alaska desperately needs a voice like the Alaska Watchman that’s willing to challenge the very biased left wing news and reporting we’re being saturated with here 24/7/365! The Anchorage Daily News has been my go to site for news, sports, and weather for many years now, but sadly, they’ve become totally biased and very left leaning politically! The only news “reporting” that they run regarding our Governor, or President is always in a negative light and never giving credit where credit is due, or even accurately reporting what they’ve said! The Alaska Watchman is a candle in the darkness and a desperately needed voice of reason and liberty in our state!
