RIGHT-CENTER BIAS

These sources are generally trustworthy for information but may require further investigation. See all Right-Center sources.

  • Overall, we rate the Financial Express Right-Center Biased based on story selection and editorial positions that favor the conservative government. We also rate them Mixed for factual reporting due to poor sourcing techniques and four failed fact checks.

Analysis / Bias

In review, the Financial Express covers economic, financial, and general news with moderately loaded language. After Ashok Gehlot’s outburst is it the end of road for Sachin Pilot in Congress?. This story, like many, comes from the Indian News Wire Press Trust of India (PTI). Other stories are published by reporters such as this IAF to get lethal Rafales: Laden with weapons, Air Force gets ready to receive Rafale fighters but does not contain hyperlinked sourcing.

Editorially, the Financial Express favors conservative Prime Minister Modi and rarely offers criticism such as this: PM Modi interacts with IBM CEO Arvind Krishna; IBM says has big investment plan for India, and this PM Modi crosses another milestone! Goes past six crore follower-count on Twitter. When reporting on USA politics, they generally rely on the Associated Press and PTI. In general, they hold a right-leaning editorial bias favoring Modi’s BJP government and do not always report factual news as evidenced by failed fact checks.

Failed Fact Checks

Overall, we rate the Financial Express Right-Center Biased based on story selection and editorial positions that favor the conservative government. We also rate them Mixed for factual reporting due to poor sourcing techniques and four failed fact checks. (10/30/2016) Updated (D. Van Zandt 10/01/2021)
