In review, there is significant use of loaded emotional language in their titles, such as NATO Sacrifices Global Stability on Altar of Its ‘Punish Putin’ Strategy.
When it comes to sourcing, they mainly use factual and factually mixed sources such as Carnegieeurope.eu, and truthout.org.
Morocco World News (MVN) also publishes pro-Morocco monarch articles such as “King Mohammed VI Calls for Action Against Climate Change, Desertification” and “King Mohammed VI Calls For Business-Friendly Climate For Moroccan Diaspora.” Further, they promote pro-conservative and monarchist Istiqlal party such as “Al Istiqlal: Recent Reforms Constitute a ‘Social Revolution’ in Morocco.”
An example of pro-monarch propaganda can be seen when reporting positively on the economy “Morocco’s Economic Growth Expected to Reach 4.5% in 2023”. However, other news outlets report critical information regarding Morocco’s economy: “Morocco: Mohammed VI’s silence on the country’s woes speaks volumes.” In general, Morocco World News holds a Right-Center bias in reporting through the promotion of pro-Monarch propaganda.
