Analysis / Bias
The Fair Observer provides original reporting and in-depth analysis on world news, politics, economics, business, and culture. There is the moderate use of loaded emotional language such as this Will the Azeem Rafiq Case Purge Britain of Racism? This story is sourced correctly, as is all content reviewed.
Editorially, the Fair Observer leans left with stories that favor a liberal perspective. For instance, in this story, they denigrate former President Trump for promoting hate Donald Trump and the “Kung Flu.” Other stories support immigration and promote the dangers of climate change The Vaccine Pushback Is Bad, But Wait for the Climate One. In general, a review of dozens of articles indicates a left-leaning editorial bias and factual reporting.
