Analysis / Bias

In review, The Tyee produces original journalism that utilizes moderate loaded language that favors the left such as this: ‘Together We Are Unstoppable.’ Thousands Join Greta Thunberg in Vancouver Climate Protest. This story is properly sourced to credible media. In another story, How Progressives Can Compete to Win Next Time, they again support the left and properly source to credible information from The Conversation.

Editorially, most stories favor the left and are properly sourced to credible media outlets or information.

A factual search reveals they have not failed a fact check.
