Analysis / Bias

In review, Alabama Today is a website that reports on news related to Alabama and offers an opinion section for guest writers. News reporting is often presented with minimal bias in wording such as this Ross Marchand: USPS must deliver greater transparency. When it comes to sourcing information, they do not use hyperlinks, relying on quotes. This is unacceptable for an online publication.

A review of editorial positions reveals that more favor the right such as this Chris Talgo: Joy to the world, Build Back Better’s demise has come, and AG Steve Marshall fights to protect Alabama land from Biden administration ‘overreach.’ A review of their coverage on Covid-19 indicates they are pro-science utilizing the Associated Press and guest writers. In general, they report news factual and hold fiscally conservative viewpoints.
