In review, the Charleston Gazette reports news, crime, sports, and lifestyle for the greater Charleston area. Local articles and headlines use minimally loaded emotional language such as this City fire department on track to fill holes left by retirees, new chief says. National and international news comes from the Associated Press.

Editorially, the reporting tends to favor the left such as this Gazette-Mail editorial: WV GOP needs to return to planet Earth. In general, the news is reported factually with a left leaning editorial bias.
