Funded by / Ownership
Caribbean Life is part of the NYC Community Media newspaper group, which was 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.
Overall, we rate Caribbean Life Left-Center biased editorially and High for factual reporting due to proper sourcing and a clean fact check record. (M. Huitsing 3/23/2018) Updated (3/8/2020)
