LEFT-CENTER BIAS

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 appeals 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.

  • Overall, we rate Dutch Review strongly Left-Center Biased based on story selections and op-eds that usually favor the left. We also rate them Mostly Factual in reporting rather than High due to infrequently publishing stories that are not proven.

Its main focus is entertainment, but it does have content for political opinion pieces.  They state their mission as ” to inform our audience about the most important stories coming out of the Netherlands. We like our opinions and editorials sharp and provoking, but we try to keep it neutral in general (except for Trump, that man is an ass)”

Analysis / Bias

Dutch Review uses left bias when reporting USA news such as https://dutchreview.com/news/international-news/trump-money-laundering-in-the-netherlands/ (this is unproven). It has a right-center bias in word choices when reporting Dutch-related political news.  For example, 4 THINGS ABOUT *SHOCK* CRIMINAL MIGRANTS IN THE NETHERLANDS”.

Editorially, the Dutch Review holds a progressive left bias on issues such as feminism Being a feminist in the Netherlands: surprisingly, it’s a challenge. A review of op-eds also reveals a left-leaning bias with concern for the environment OPINION: why the Shell verdict was much more than just a court case win, and negative reporting on the right-wing in America and the Netherlands Wilders Deletes Twitter Party Snap Taken With US Right-Wing Politician. In general, Dutch Review reports news factually and with a strong left-center bias.
