These media sources have a slight to moderate liberal bias. They often publish factual information that utilizes loaded words (wording that attempts to influence an audience by using appeal to emotion or stereotypes) to favor liberal causes. These sources are generally trustworthy for information, but may require further investigation. See all Left-Center sources.
Factual Reporting: HIGH World Press Freedom Rank: USA 45/180
In review, Kotaku primarily covers video games and entertainment news, however they do occasionally cover politics when it relates to video games, internet or entertainment. Kotaku uses minimal to moderately loaded headlines such as this: Trump Says Video Game Violence Is ‘Shaping Young People’s Thoughts’. All information contained in articles is well sourced to credible media outlets or sources. Story selection moderately favors the left.
A factual search reveals they never failed a fact check by an IFCN fact checker.
Overall, we rate Kotaku Left-Center biased based on story selection that moderately favors the left and High for factual reporting due to proper sourcing of information. (D. Van Zandt 9/28/2018)
