Analysis / Bias
In review, the California Globe covers government and politics throughout the state of California. News is broken into 5 categories as follows: Governor, Legislature, Local, National and Hollywood. The local link, further breaks news down by individual counties in California. News headlines typically are not sensational and use minimally loaded language such as this: Comparing California Government To Those Of Other States. However, there are occasional articles with moderately loaded language such as this one: Dam Sexism And Racism. News stories are properly sourced to credible media outlets such as the Sacramento Bee and the San Jose Mercury News. Story selection tends to favor the right through featuring right leaning writers such as Republican Senator John Moorlach and Evan Gahr who was a columnist for the right leaning Daily Caller and press critic for New York Post.
In general, the California Globe demonstrates a right leaning editorial bias and sources information properly.
