Analysis / Bias
In review, Green Left Weekly covers local, national and international news, and provides left-wing analysis and debate to strengthen the anti-capitalist and socialist movements. There is moderate use of loaded words in headlines and articles that exclusively favor the left. Green Left Weekly typically sources their information correctly to credible sources, however other times they do not source at all.
Overall, we rate Green Left Weekly strongly Left Biased based on story selection and Mixed for factual reporting due to poor sourcing. (D. Van Zandt 12/14/2017) Updated (11/22/2018)
