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: Launched in 2009 by London based Royal African Society, African Arguments is a Pan-African blogging platform covering news, investigation and opinion pertaining to Africa. African Arguments describes its objective as “seek to analyze issues facing the continent, investigate the stories that matter, and amplify a diversity of voices.”
In review, African Arguments use loaded language in their headlines and the body of articles such as: “Tillerson didn’t do much for Africa. Pompeo could well be worse.” They typically utilize credible sources such as Inter Press Service (IPS), Reuters, parliament.uk, Transparency International, Bloomberg and national news sources specific to the country they are reporting about such as, www.nation.co.ke for Kenya, Vanguard (Nigeria), and www.thecitizen.co.tz for Tanzania.
When it comes to US politics their word choices are anti-Trump such as “Trump’s Africa policy: Unclear and uncertain.”
Overall, we rate African Arguments Left-Center Biased due to word choices that favors the left and highly factual due to thorough and credible sourcing. (M. Huitsing 4/8/2018)
