Analysis / Bias

In review, local news is covered via journalists while national/international news is derived from outside sources such as the Washington Post. There is minimal use of biased language in straight news reporting. Editorially, the Duluth News Tribune leans right in opinion and editorial content. Up until the 2016 election the DNT has always endorsed Republican Presidential candidates. There is also use of loaded emotional language in opinion pieces such as this: Immigrant-bashing began with Founding Fathers — not with Trump. In general, more published editorials favor the right.

A factual search reveals that the Duluth News Tribune has not failed a fact check.

Overall, we rate the Duluth News Tribune Right-Center Biased based on editorial content and High for factual reporting due to proper sourcing of information. (D. Van Zandt 11/6/2018)
