Analysis / Bias

In review, the Miami Herald covers South Florida news through journalists and with minimal bias in wording such as this: The price of gas in Florida may go down this week. Here’s why. National and international news is derived primarily from the Associated Press and New York Times. Editorially, the Miami Herald has endorsed Democratic Presidential candidates since 2000. Further, most editorials favor the political left and sometimes utilize loaded emotional language such as these: The Invading Sea: Democrats in debate must focus on solutions to climate change and Reprehensible immigrant round ups in Miami postponed — for now | Editorial. In general, straight news reporting is low biased and factual, while editorially there is moderate liberal bias in story selection and policy preferences.

A factual search reveals they have never failed a fact check.

Overall, we rate the Miami Herald Left-Center Biased based on editorial positions that moderately favor the left and High for factual reporting due to a clean fact check record. (D. Van Zandt 7/16/2016) Updated (7/8/2019)
