These sources are generally trustworthy for information, but may require further investigation. See all Right-Center sources.

Funded by / Ownership

The Korea Herald is subsidized by the government and operated by Herald Corporation. The paper is funded through advertising and paid subscriptions.

Analysis / Bias

The Korea Herald often uses loaded words in their headlines that are charged with emotion, such as: Putin negative on sanctions. When reporting stories about the USA there is a left-center bias, such as this: Trump risk. However, when reporting South Korean national news there is a right-center bias. Unfortunately, they rarely provide links to their sources, which makes it difficult to verify the context and accuracy of stories. International news is typically covered by the Associated Press. A factual search also reveals they have published some false claims.

Overall, we rate The Korea Herald mixed for factual reporting due to failed fact checks and right-center biased based on national reporting. (M. Huitsing 9/14/2017) Updated (6/25/2018)
