Analysis / Bias
D Magazine provides news and opinion content for the Dallas, Texas metro region, covering politics, entertainment, fashion, business news, and lifestyle. Local news reporting does not use loaded emotional language such as this What It Will Take To Bring the Longhorn Ballroom Back To Life. D Magazine properly sources from reliable sources such as Texas Monthly and the Dallas Morning News.
Editorially, they provide a balance in story selection, with some favoring the left, such as this Donald Trump’s Worst Nightmare. Op-eds tend to slightly favor the left, such as this DMN Editorial Board Twists Itself in Knots Over Masks in Schools. A quote from this piece reads, “We applaud him for doing everything in his power to keep our kids and community safe. As for Abbott (Conservative Governor), he can pound sand.” They do offer right-leaning viewpoints but slightly more favor the left. In general, they report factual news and fall in the left-leaning Least Biased category.
