Analysis / Bias

In review, The Dodo publishes feel-good stories about animals such as this: 5 Reasons Why Big Dogs Are The Best. Besides feel-good stories, they also report on animals that are threatened by extinction, such as this: Last Rhino Of His Kind Gets Armed Protection. In between articles about wildlife, there are very cute stories such as this.

Regarding politics, this source has a strong left-leaning bias that is often opposed to former President Trump, such as this: Trump Defends His Sons’ Sick Hobby Of Killing Innocent Animals. In general, story selection always favors the left and denigrates the right through loaded emotional language.
