Funded by / Ownership

Kotaku is owned by Univision Communications and is funded through online advertising.

Analysis / Bias

Kotaku is under the Gizmodo Media Group umbrella, which features popular left leaning websites such as Deadspin, Jezebel, Splinter and The Root.

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)
