Daily Source Bias Check: Global News

Global News - Left Center BiasLEFT-CENTER BIAS

These media sources have a slight to moderate liberal bias.  They often publish factual information that utilizes loaded words (wording that attempts to influence an audience by using appeal to emotion or stereotypes) to favor liberal causes.  These sources are generally trustworthy for information, but may require further investigation. See all Left-Center sources.

Factual Reporting: HIGH

Notes: Global News is the news and current affairs division of Global Television Network in Canada, overseeing all local and national news programming on the network’s twelve owned-and-operated stations. Global News provides evidence based sourced news. They  do have a left-center leaning when it comes to story selection that slightly favors liberals and occasional emotional words that convey mild bias. (D. Van Zandt 2/21/2017)

Review #2: Global News (GN) is a Canadian based news site owned by Shaw Communications (SC) (J. R. Shaw, and family). While SC is primarily a conservative organization, GN appears to be very fair, balanced, well sourced, and factual in their reporting. The articles I reviewed were either direct reprints or heavily sourced from Least Biased sources such as Reuters and Associated Press. Those articles that are not direct carry overs do contain a slight Left Bias, although the reporting is, again, well sourced and factual. Note: This review is only based on GN’s political reporting, and while this reviewer is no expert on Canadian politics, the articles I read on those subjects appeared to have a slight Left Bias as well. Despite its’ parent companies conservative stance, GN itself nearly scored a Least Biased rating, earning a Left-Center Bias rating overall. (D. Kelley 12/1/2017)
