Analysis / Bias
LittleThings publishes uplifting human interest stories focusing on health and parenting. Articles and headlines do not use overly emotional wording such as this Moms Who Got Sober During The Health Crisis Open Up About What It Was Like. However, some stories have sensational headlines, such as this Bindi Irwin Gets Surprised By Her Husband And Brother With Terrifying Nursery Theme.
Editorially, LittleThings aligns with the left reporting negatively on conservatives such as this Mary Trump Is Reportedly Set To Take Down Her Famous Family With ‘Harrowing’ Details In New Book and reporting positively on President Joe Biden Major Biden Had His ‘Indoguration’ And Raised Over $200,000 For The Rescue He Came From.
When it comes to science, LittleThings prefers Pseudo. For example, they promote liver detox, 8 Foods To Eat And 4 To Avoid In Order To Detox Your Liver In A Safe And Healthy Way, where there is no evidence to support it. They also promote Acupressure, Acupressure Points And Their Surprising Health Benefits, which again lacks evidence. They have also published false information, as seen below, in failed fact checks.
Failed Fact Checks
