Analysis / Bias
In review, The Eagle Pass News Leader focuses on news from Eagle Pass, Texas and uses staff writers for local news. News articles often contain emotional wording such as this: 10-month-old migrant baby found dead, drowned at the Rio Grande. While we hope this story is not true, we are hopeful it is not as there is not a single hyperlink to validate this story. This is the norm for most stories on this site. The website tends to focus on negative stories regarding immigrants. In general, there is minimal to zero sourcing of information and most stories favor the right regarding immigrants.
Overall, we rate The Eagle Pass News Leader a Right Biased source based on strong right wing bias, poor sourcing of information and a lack of transparency, which equates to Mixed factual reporting. (D. Van Zandt 5/3/2019)
