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, making it difficult to verify the context and accuracy of stories. International news is typically covered by the Associated Press. On the bias scale, they are difficult to rate, but our analysis puts them just right of center and reasonably factual.
