Analysis / Bias

In review, Infobae publishes articles with moderate emotionally loaded language such as these: “The details of the controversial decree that allows importing garbage from other countries” and “The president said there was no increase in the tax applied to the rural sector. “We are leaving standing what (Mauricio) Macri put in.”

Infobae has a content alliance with the left-leaning Vice.com and the Washington Post when it comes to sourcing. Further, Infobae often hyperlinks to itself and credible sources such as AFP and The New York Times.  When covering world news about the USA, they cover the Biden administration with a favorable tone, such as in this article The US Congress gave Biden powers to lend more weapons to Ukraine. In general, Infobae reports news factually as evidenced by a clean fact check record.
