In review, KARE11 reports local news primarily through TV news videos and accompanying text. Local news is presented with minimally loaded wording such as this Walz calls for public safety funding ahead of MPD officer trials. National and International news is provided by the Associated Press and other TEGNA TV stations.
KARE11 also has a section dedicated to politics covering national politics through the Associated Press and local Minnesota politics through KARE11.com. Again, the wording is low-biased such as this: Lawmakers seek paid leave for packing plant workers. Further, the website does not publish editorial commentary.
