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.
