Analysis / Bias

India Today reports international news with low biased wording, and they source properly to credible mainstream media sources such as Reuters. The current Prime Minister of India is Narendra Modi, the head of the conservative Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). Editorially, India Today rarely criticizes Modi and often reports favorable on him, such as this PM Narendra Modi crosses 60mn followers on Twitter. In general international news is reported factually, while national news holds a right-center bias favoring the current government.
