Analysis / Bias

The Daily Express is a British right wing tabloid newspaper that routinely utilizes sensational headlines such as this: NATO TERRIFIED: Trump may ‘seriously undermine’ alliance in Putin meeting – world on ALERT. Articles are typically written by journalist or correspondents and are reasonably sourced to credible information. However, like many tabloids the Daily Express also publishes conspiracy and pseudoscience articles such as these:  ‘Portal OPENS’ above New Jersey with some fearing it’s a sign of PLANET X  and Could this strange corpse be the world’s first proof aliens have visited Earth?

The paper’s editorial stances have often been seen as aligned to the UK Independence Party (UKIP), Euroscepticism and many other right-wing factions including the right-wing of the Conservative Party.
