AIM supported the Vietnam War and blamed "media bias" for the U.S. loss in the war. During the Reagan administration, AIM criticised reporting about the El Mozote massacre in El Salvador. During the Clinton years, AIM suggested Clinton aid Vince Foster was murdered. During the following years of the Bush administration, AIM accused the media of bias against the Iraq War, defended the Bush and CIA use of torture, and campaigned to stop the United States from signing the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea. It described Barack Obama as "the most radical candidate ever" and "a member of an international socialist movement." It also criticized the media's response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
AIM, which opposes the scientific consensus on climate change, has criticized media reporting on climate change. The organization gives out the Reed Irvine Accuracy in Media Award. Past recipients include Marc Morano (who runs the climate change denial website ClimateDepot), Tucker Carlson, and Jim Hoft Gateway Pundit).
