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. Overall, we rate them high for factual reporting and left-center biased for story selection and word choices. (M. Huitsing 9/13/2017) Updated (6/14/2018)
