Analysis / Bias

The Day presents news with low bias and covers all sides with balance. All articles are well-sourced and researched and do not contain emotionally loaded wording, such as this Connecticut Contracting Standards Board has limited jurisdiction over Mystic Oral School. News primarily focuses on New London and the surrounding areas, while national and international news comes from the Associated Press and sometimes the Washington Post.

Editorially, The Day clearly labels opinion pieces that favor a liberal perspective such as this Lawsuit could rein in NRA’s ability to wreak havoc, and this Respond to climate change here, now. In general, the news is reported factually, while editorials hold a left-leaning bias.
