Analysis / Bias
In review, Foreign Policy covers news related to foreign affairs with minimal bias. Headlines are generally free from loaded words, though at times moderate such as this: Bernie Sanders Still Doesn’t Pass the Commander-in-Chief Test (anti-progressive) and this Trump Doesn’t Want to Play Peacemaker (anti-Trump). Both of these articles are properly sourced. In general, Foreign Policy is slightly right leaning in their news coverage, but balanced in reporting and well sourced.
