These media sources are slightly to moderately conservative in bias. They often publish factual information that utilizes loaded words (wording that attempts to influence an audience by using appeal to emotion or stereotypes) to favor conservative causes. These sources are generally trustworthy for information, but may require further investigation. See all Right-Center sources.

Factual Reporting: HIGH

Notes: The Fortnightly Review was one of the most prominent and influential magazines in nineteenth-century England. The magazine mainly covered topics on Politics, Literature, Philosophy, Science, and Art. The Fortnightly Review is known to publish many articles stories and essays of famous literary figures such as Oscar Wilde, George Orwell,  James Joyce, W. B. Yeats, and Ezra Pound. The magazine also published several articles on science and astronomy. The print magazine ceased publication in 1954. In 2009, a group of British and American scholars and writers began publication of a “new series” online at The Fortnightly Review. The current editors are Alan Macfarlane and Denis Boyles.

Today, the Fortnightly Review publishes articles about a wide variety of subjects including literature, philosophy, science, and art. However, their opinion pieces on US politics presents a pro-Donald Trump/Republican bias that utilizes strong loaded words such as this “Obama, of course, was utterly immune from any comic baiting, mainly because he was black and therefore privileged with racial untouchability”. Overall, Fortnightly Review has a strong right wing editorial bias, but publishes a variety of other information with low bias, therefore we rate them at the far end of Right-Center bias and factual in reporting.
