Analysis / Bias

In review, Boy Genius Report is a technology website that focuses on Tech, Entertainment, Business, Science, and Lifestyle. Primarily, this is a technology website, though. Most information is related to advances in tech with minimal bias, such as this T-Mobile confirms 19 devices that will stop working on its network this month. This story, like all others, is properly sourced.

Editorially, they do not produce political op-eds; however, they do report on politics related to tech and science such as Dr. Fauci is finally fed up with Trump’s continued attacks over coronavirus and this Trump campaign demands Biden pull attack ad that’s full of fake news. While most of this site is not related to politics, the stories that do involve politics tend to favor the left slightly. In general, story selection slightly favors the left and is sourced and factual.
