Caribbean Life News or Caribbean Life is a tabloid newspaper for the English-speaking Caribbean-American communities in New York City. Caribbean Life is headquartered in Brooklyn, NY and the Managing Editor is Vince DiMiceli. Caribbean Life covers commentary, politics, sports, arts, culture, and news local to its circulation area.
Funded by / Ownership
Caribbean Life is part of the NYC Community Media newspaper group, an affiliate of News Corporation that owns Community News Group; however, in 2014, according to an interview piece in the New York Business Journal, Jennifer Goodstein acquired Community News Group from News Corp. “They nabbed the Community Newspaper Group from News Corporation, expanding their coverage with the Brooklyn Paper and Caribbean Life. They would not disclose the purchase price.”
Analysis / Bias
In review, Caribbean Life utilizes minimally loaded language in their headlines, such as “Caribbean Pan-African leaders to Trump: ‘Persona non-grata’” and Caribbean Life uses credible sources such as the New York Times, but they typically source through quotes in their reporting. In general, story selection favors the left, and a factual search reveals they have not failed a fact check. The political alignment of this tabloid fits the audience they target, and in this case, the Caribbean community is traditionally left-leaning.
