Analysis / Bias
The current Prime Minister and leader of the Social Democrats are Mette Frederiksen. They are considered Center-Left, as they are left on economics, whereas they are skeptical of globalization, neoliberalism, and immigration.
In review, Berlingske often covers news on culture, art, and society with sensational headlines and extensive use of images: “When the mother returned, her daughter said just one phrase: “I hate you.” Berlingske also publishes political articles with emotionally loaded language; for example, when covering the recent British elections, they use favorable, emotionally loaded headlines for conservative Boris Johnson, such as this: “The Boris Johnson Rule: Business can learn one thing from his big election victory.”
They also publish articles critical of the Center-Right Venstre, Danmarks Liberale Parti leader Jakob Ellemann-Jensen such as: “Following the Armed Forces scandal: Ellemann’s proposal is called “utterly hopeless to implement.” On the issues, they frequently publish anti-immigration and anti-Muslim articles such as “Ruud Koopmans has been researching integration for more than 20 years – and he cannot point to a single Western country that is successful in integrating Muslims.”
Regarding sourcing, Berlingske often hyperlinks to themselves and local sources such as euvsdisinfo.eu and the Danish News Agency Ritzau. They also link to credible news sources such as BBC and Reuters. When covering world news about the USA, they cover the former Trump administration with a favorable tone, such as in this article: “The crucial blow to the war against Trump.”
