Analysis / Bias

In review, ABC11 has a left-center bias in reporting coverage and story word choices such as: “Artists hang Ku Klux’ Klowns’ from tree to protest white nationalism in Virginia” and “Trump administration to review and replace Obama rules on campus sex assault.” ABC11 is well-sourced as they use credible news sources such as the AP.

Editorially, they do not produce op-eds, but reporting on politics tends to lean slightly left.
