Analysis / Bias
The website covers a wide range of topics from a global perspective, often focusing on issues related to authoritarianism, disinformation, human rights, and technology. The articles provide in-depth analysis and investigative reporting.
Articles and headlines often contain loaded emotional wording, such as this Italy’s pro-choice gynecologists reel from post-Roe shockwaves. This story is appropriately sourced from credible outlets like Bloomberg, Reuters, and Human Rights Watch.
Editorially, Coda Story holds progressive views as they tend to highlight human rights abuses, climate change, and the impact of disinformation on society. For example, they frequently report negatively on conservatives who they perceive as threatening human rights, such as this Ahead of elections, Poland’s conservative media fires up anti-LGBTQ propaganda. The website also supports pro-choice advocates: With help from American activists, Ukrainian women are being misled about abortion, and reports negatively on Florida Governor Ron Desantis Florida’s ban on transgender care pushes doctors to leave the state. In general, Coda Story is fact-based and holds strongly left-leaning editorial biases.
