Analysis / Bias
In review, Justice Denied is not a true news reporting source, but rather a library/database of information related to those wrongfully convicted of crimes. There are 1000’s of articles dating back to 1998 highlighting the many times justice was denied. Justice Denied has a section on the website dedicated to publishing news stories about wrongful convictions and/or justice that utilizes minimally loaded words such as this: 20,000 Misdeameanor Marijuana Convictions In Kings County, NY Could Be Vacated In New Program By DA’s Office. Information within these news articles is properly sourced to credible media sources and/or court documents. In general, Justice Denied sticks to their mission and covers wrongful convictions with minimal bias.
