Analysis / Bias
In review, Blue Dot Daily is a news and opinion blog that reports with an extreme left wing bias. All stories favor the left and utilize loaded language such as this: Trump goes nuts after his favorite network airs revealing info about him. This story is not sourced at all. In another loaded emotional article, Trump caves, infuriates his base with lame compromise – Pelosi says Nope!, the only source used is a tweet. In general, all stories favor the left and denigrate the right through the use highly biased wording.
Overall, we rate Blue Dot Daily Questionable based on extreme left bias through story selection and wording, poor sourcing of information and a lack of transparency. (F. Locke-Siewert 12/30/2016) Updated (5/30/2019)
