Analysis / Bias
In review, the Denton Record-Chronicle covers local news through journalist with minimal bias such as this: Denton auditor: City credit cards need more monitoring. National news is mostly covered by the Associated Press and also Texas media such as the Texas Tribune. All stories are properly sourced. Editorially, they cover both sides, but do tend to slightly favor the left with Op-Ed’s such as this: Texas GOP leadership must root out racial bias and religious bigotry for the party to succeed. Typically, news coverage is low biased and Op-Ed’s lean slightly left. Combined, this still qualifies as a least biased source based on straight news reporting.
