Analysis / Bias
Brut covers international news and politics through video production. Videos and headlines often contain moderately loaded language that favors the left, such as this AOC on violence against Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women. Most videos are originally produced and rely on first-person accounts, which is acceptable from a sourcing standpoint.
Editorially, most videos align with the progressive left through videos that portray conservatives negatively, such as this These Conservatives Oppose Restrictive Abortion Laws. In reviewing numerous videos, many promote social justice, environmentalism with concern for climate change and racial inequalities. They also hold negative views of capitalism, comparing it to addiction, The business of addiction. Finally, the website publishes interviews with political leaders and advocates who mostly align with the progressive left. In general, Brut publishes mostly fact-based content but lacks transparency by not disclosing their progressive left bias.
