Analysis / Bias
In review, Alberta Views publishes long-form journalism with minimal bias, such as this: Taking Back the Neighbourhood When sheriffs shut down drug houses. This article is featured in their print publication and, therefore, does not source with hyperlinks; however, information is cited and quoted. For the most part, there is minimal use of loaded language, and the content is well-written. Editorially, Alberta Views does not endorse a political party; however, opinion pieces and story selection tend to lean left, such as this: Oil Sucks. This piece promotes environmentalism over the for-profit business of the oil industry.
