Analysis / Bias
EJ Insight’s reporting regarding regional news is biased against the Hong Kong Government. In contrast, its news reporting under the World News International category regarding US politics favors a left-leaning perspective such as this America’s Republicans are killing their voters. This story is republished from Project Syndicate, which MBFC rates as Left-Center Biased.
Editorially, most stories favor the left, such as this Create smart environment to achieve carbon neutrality and Delusions of power which is critical of right-wing authoritarian politicians and governments. Hong Kong is under the control of the Chinese government and, over the last few years, has lost almost all press freedom; therefore, it is rare to find criticism of the Chinese government on this website.
Failed Fact Checks
- None to date
Overall, we rate EJ Insight Left-Center biased based on editorial positions that favor the left. We also rate them Mixed for factual reporting due to a lack of hyperlinked sourcing and limited press freedom resulting in unbalanced reporting in favor of China. (M.
