Analysis / Bias
In review, the Political Tribune exhibits overt left-wing bias through the extensive use of strong emotional wording. For example, Trump Sends The Most Ridiculous Message To His Supporters After Bomb Attack, Proves He’s Insane and Trump Responds To Deadly Mass Shooting At Synagogue In Most Disgusting Way, Americans Horrified. Although both stories are adequately sourced to credible information, a significant spin is employed through loaded language that denigrates the right.
In general, all stories on Political Tribune favor the left and denigrate the right, particularly former President Trump.
