Analysis / Bias
In review, iNews reports news with minimal bias using credible media sources such as Reuters and the NYT. However, they do use the left-leaning loaded language both in their headlines and articles when discussing social issues and inequality, such as “Race audit reveals ‘bleak picture’ of inequality in British society.” iNews also has a left-center position editorially with their lack of support for Brexit. Generally, news reporting is factual and presented with a moderate left-leaning bias.
