Analysis / Bias
Today, the Fortnightly Review publishes articles about various subjects, including literature, philosophy, science, and art. However, their opinion pieces on US politics present 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.” Editorially more stories favor the right such as this Welcome to the New World Order.
