In review, local news is reported by journalists on the ground and national news through a combination of local journalists and large national sources such as the Associated Press and Bloomberg. There is minimal use of loaded language and all information is properly sourced. Editorially, there is a reasonable balance of right and left views, with perhaps a small favoring to the right. A factual search reveals the Daily Journal has never failed a fact check.
