Analysis / Bias
In review, Democracy Chronicles use emotionally loaded words in their headlines such as “Is Trump’s Tax Bill Just Corporate 3 Card Monte?” and also in the body of the article “GOP Members of Congress gathered with the ‘Dictator In Chief’ on the White House’s South Lawn, to take a victory lap & ‘Kiss the Ring.’ However, Everyone is mum about the $500B- $1.5T this Bill will cost over 10 years.” Democracy Chronicles’ stance on the Middle East is balanced as they portray from both perspectives. Story selection and the issues Democracy Chronicles support typically align with the political left. Their articles are thoroughly sourced by utilizing credible sources such as CNBC, NY Daily News, Freedom House“. They generally hold a left-leaning editorial bias and report news mostly factually.
