Analysis / Bias

Mint Press presents news with a left leaning bias in story selection. Headlines and articles use minimal to moderate loaded language such as this: NFL Freezes Policy Barring Players From Kneeling During Anthem. This particular story is republished from the conspiracy website ZeroHedge. Typically, Mint Press sources their information, but sometimes it is to Mixed factual or conspiracy websites. In general, story selection moderately favors the left such as this Trump Administration Opens Door for Corporate Attack on Vulnerable Wildlife.

A factual search reveals a few failed fact checks such as here and here by IFCN fact checkers.

Overall, we rate Mint Press Left-Center Biased based on story selection that moderately favors the left and Mixed for factual reporting due to a few failed fact checks. (5/18/2016) Updated (D. Van Zandt 7/21/2018)
