Analysis / Bias

In review, most stories published on Mediafile tend to slightly favor the left through story selection. On op-ed’s, they use minimally loaded headlines such as “Reporters Must Adapt to the Era of Constant Scandal.” In general, MediaFile sources to verifiable and credible left-leaning media sources such as the New York Times and Washington Post. However, they sometimes source to factually mixed sources such as The Blaze and Fox News to make points.

This is an updated review looking at changes in bias. We find that the paper maintains a Left-Center lean through editorial positions such as this Western Media Covers Israel-Palestine Conflict with Pro-Israel Bias, Experts Say. Mediafile produces factual news that continues to be liberal-leaning in bias.
