Analysis / Bias
In review, Left Voice presents news with minimal use of loaded emotional language in their headlines and articles such as: “Who Wins and Who Loses in Trump’s Iran Strategy?” They utilize credible left-leaning sources such as the New Yorker, WaPo, The Financial Times, and Time.
Most stories favor socialist causes such as labor unions 10,000 John Deere Workers Go On Strike. They also support LGBTQ, the environment, and social justice issues across the board. In general, they support the far socialist left, but lack transparency and do not offer differing viewpoints.
