Analysis / Bias

In review, AL DÍA uses emotionally loaded headlines such as “Bolton symbolizes U.S. arrogance towards Latin America” and “Trump, Kushner and the new anti-immigrant agenda.” The body of this article contains a strong anti-Trump tone such as this:

“While the president keeps the country obsessed with the Mueller Report, his closest advisers – and relatives – decide on the new immigration policies in the country.”

In another article, there is a neutral headline that reads “Bernie Sanders’ strategy to engage Latino voters,” however, the author clearly favors Bernie Sanders:

“Medicare-For-All, tuition-free education, a Green New Deal … these proposals, which in the past would have been discarded at first glance, have become the bread and butter of a United States deeply divided among those who still believe in the Republican format and those who demand a Democratic Party up to the new challenges.”

When it comes to sourcing information, straight news articles are properly sourced to credible media outlets such as the New York Times. However, opinion pieces often lack proper sourcing or link back to other Al DIA articles. Editorially, most op-eds are left-leaning, and Al DIA does not have a separate category for opinion pieces but rather publishes them side by side with straight news. This is confusing and misleading as op-eds are always strongly left-biased and one-sided.
