Analysis / Bias
In review, City Pages covers news and events related to the Minneapolis-St. Paul metro area. This review focuses on news reporting. City Pages primarily only covers local news with minimally biased wording such as this: Charges: St. Paul man advertised stolen Apple watches on mom’s Facebook. However, some reports contain commentary that does use loaded emotional language such as this: Can we blame millennials for the cost of living in Minneapolis?. This story is properly sourced to Business Insider, LA Times and the Star Tribune.
Editorially, City Pages does not have a section dedicated to opinion commentary, however sometimes authors offer commentary within news stories, usually with a very slight left leaning bias.
A factual search reveals they have not failed a fact check.
Overall, we rate City Pages slightly Left-Center biased based on story selection that mildly favor the left. We also rate them High for factual reporting due to proper sourcing and a clean fact check record. (D. Van Zandt 01/15/2020)
