Analysis / Bias
In review, Jezebel covers woman’s issues and politics with a left-leaning bias in story selection. Headlines contain moderately loaded language such as this: Donald Trump’s Name Is Worth $4 Billion, According to Himself, and this Barbara Bush Talks Shit From Beyond the Grave. Sourcing is generally from credible mainstream sources. Editorially, Jezebel often denigrates the right and promotes the left through both wording and overall story selection.
A factual search reveals they have not failed a fact check.
