Kay often endorses views regarded as conservative, particularly on the subjects of Israel, political correctness and policy toward North American Aboriginals. However, he also has dissented from conservatives on a variety of issues. In recent years, for example, he has written articles raising awareness about income inequality, and questioning the conduct of the Iraq War. In 2010, Kay argued that conservatives are wrong to continue challenging the majority scientific view on global warming. In response, Financial Post columnist Terrance Corcoran, a noted climate-change skeptic, argued that Kay's support of the climate changetheory was based on unproven environmentalist dogmas.

Among the Truthers generally received positive reviews in major media outlets, such as The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal and The Economist. But it received uniformly negative reactions from members of the 9/11 Truth Movement.
