La Presse - Left Center BiasLEFT-CENTER BIAS

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: Canada 22/180

Notes: Founded in 1884, La Presse is a French Language weekly newspaper from Montreal, Canada. La Presse publishes news and current affairs. According to the CBC, during the 2015 Canadian Federal Election, La Presse endorsed Justin Trudeau’s Liberals.

La Presse publishes stories with moderately loaded emotional headlines, such as: “Two journalists insulted by Trump are questioning his mental health” and they always source to credible media such as Agence France-Presse and AP. Overall, they mostly lean left in their word choice bias, therefore we rate them Left-Center biased and HIGH for factual reporting.
