Analysis / Bias

In review, The Center for Global Development (CGD) promotes combating global poverty as well as reducing carbon emissions and promoting pro-science positions such as vaccination in developing countries. Further, the website reports on sustainable development as well as Gender and Equality. The website also features a blog that report news and analysis from a left leaning perspective. For example, this story: Russia, DFC, and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Idea Buried in the Spending Law. This story like most is properly sourced to credible outlets such as House.gov, Congress.gov and the DFC. The website frequently reports on the dangers of climate change and denigrates the Trump administration such as this: Trump’s Strangest Trade Idea Yet. In general, the CGD reports factually, but offers a left leaning perspective through promotion of liberal leaning causes.
