Analysis / Bias
In review, Liberal America utilizes strong emotional wording that favors the left in headlines like this: Trump Just Left The Kurds to Die. The Question is: For What? (Video). This story comes straight from Op-Ed News which we rate Left Biased and Mixed for factual reporting. Another loaded headline reads: Trump’s Really, Really Bad Week As The Walls Close In (Video). This article is very well sourced from various credible sources such as Politico, Vox, Chicago Sun-Times, and The Hill. Within the article, there is significant use of emotional language to sway the reader, such as this: “We now know apparently the price Trump was willing to pay to betray his country”. Some articles such as this one, is not sourced via hyperlink at all.
In general, all stories on Liberal America favor the left and denigrate the right.
