Analysis / Bias
In review, the Arizona Daily Independent is a right-wing biased website that favors conservative causes. For example, there are many instances of articles questioning the consensus on human-influenced climate change. When reporting on political news, almost every story favors the right. Although headlines are not particularly sensationalized, there is virtually zero sourcing of information. In general, story selection always favors the right. They have also published misleading information: Treaty With Ukraine On Mutual Legal Assistance In Criminal Matters. The fact is the treaty does not protect the President.
