Analysis / Bias
In review, the magazine and website publish news on technology, technical innovation, and sustainable energy. Articles and headlines are free of emotional wording, such as This is the most precise 3D map of the Milky Way ever made. Although they rarely report on politics, they do not positively view former President Trump’s scientific positions such as The Gaping, Dangerous Hole in the Trump Administration. Finally, during the coronavirus of 2020, they have reported factual pro-science information. In general, all information is pro-science, and any bias is directed at those who reject the scientific consensus.
