Deccan herald - Left Center Bias - Liberal - Democrat - Not CredibleFactual Reporting: Mixed - Not always Credible or Reliable


These media sources have a slight to moderate liberal bias.  They often publish factual information that utilizes loaded words (wording that attempts to influence an audience by using appeal to emotion or stereotypes) to favor liberal causes.  These sources are generally trustworthy for information, but may require further investigation. See all Left-Center sources.

Factual Reporting: MIXED
World Press Freedom Rank: India 136/180

Notes: Deccan Herald founded by K.N.Guruswamy in 1948, is an Indian English-language daily newspaper headquartered in Bengaluru, India. They are published and owned by the Printers (Mysore) Private Limited. Deccan Herald covers various topics including India News, World News, Politics, Sports, Society, Literature, Arts and more.

In review, they publish national stories with neutral headlines such as “Journalist Gauri Lankesh shot dead outside home.” Further, their articles are well sourced through quotes but they rarely provide links to those sources, which does not allow the reader to check the credibility of the source. For the USA, their news coverage mostly leans left, such as: “Trump’s tougher H1B rules take toll, disheartened wife commits suicide.” Overall, we rate the Deccan Herald Left-Center biased and MIXED for factual reporting due to lack of linking to sources.
